Amazing 360-degree video gives you a terrifying look at a giant tornado

Powerful tornadoes touch down in Wray, Colorado

The giant tornado that rolled past the city of Wray, Colorado provided some stunning video and gave one teen couple a memorable prom photo. But now it's yielded one more gift: a mesmerizing, 360-degree view of the storm as it crosses a highway.

The video — be sure to spin the view to see the storm — gives you a fuller idea of what it's like to be this close to a large tornado. Not only can the viewer swivel around to see just how large the storm that spun the twister is, the video scans up to give you a look at the full length of the twister, right up to where it drops from the sky.

This is a rare look at the full, immense power nature churns up every year across the United States, and it's worth taking the video for a spin — literally.
