Small openings in turbulent cloud cover around sunset on Wednesday, April 25, 2012 allowed brilliant illumination of a low-hanging portion of it. Conditions were much worse about 110 miles to the south: a supercell in Clark County, Missouri produced a brief tornado and hail. This image of the southwest sky was taken from Friendship Baptist Church in Cedar Rapids, Iowa around 7:57 PM. Boyson Road is shown in the background as well as a communications tower operated by Century Communications LLC.
