I've posted a few pics below from MWN followers who were as amazed as we were. A couple of "apocalypse" references were even witnessed on social media as the shelf cloud (the visible incarnation of the outflow itself), and what appeared to be boiling black skies behind it, passed overhead. Click each to enlarge.
