This towering cumulonimbus cloud resulted from a front that passed through Brampton, Ontario (Canada) on the afternoon of April 13, 2006. The top of this burgeoning cloud is protruding high into the troposphere and looms over the town of Brampton. Backlighting from the Sun allowed us to observe how it continuously changed its shape and dimensions.
