This amazing video is a time lapse of the sun setting behind a deck of clouds underneath the observatory at Mount Washington, New Hampshire. (That white fluffy stuff in the middle of the picture is not snow or waves, it's clouds!) It is the highest peak in the Northeastern United States at 6,288 ft (1,917 m), and is famous for dangerously crazy weather, including a wind gust of 231 miles per hour the during a storm in April of 1934. This wind speed still stands as the highest all-time surface wind speed observed by man. Yesterday the wind chill was 0 degrees and the winds gusted at over 80 MPH.
