Stunning Sunset Brings Pink Clouds, Rainbow, and Lightning to Colorado Sky

The last moments of a storm near Kirk, Colorado, brought pink clouds, lightning, and a rainbow to the evening sky on June 3.

Storm chaser Jennifer Walton posted the footage, calling it, “one of the most stunning finales to a storm chase I’ve seen.”

Walton told Storyful: “This is the last light on a previously tornado-warned storm just east of Kirk, Colorado. There is a sunset backlighting rain curtains, a rainbow and occasional lightning strikes, panning from south to north facing.”
