Base of storms north of Murphysboro, IL. These storms were just north of an outflow boundary, and had they been able to root just a few miles farther south, I believe these would have easily produced tornadoes. Alas, they stayed undercut for all of their observed lives - winds were northerly here:

Excellent as usual! Saw two bright meteors from opposite you at Altamont so be that you were facing ENE, wonder if that may be one of the ones I saw too as I was looking WSW and up?

I thought at first that it was a meteor, and that's possible as I didn't notice it when it happened - but the symmetrical tapering at both ends looks more iridium flare-ish. Wish I'd had the shutter open longer to pick up some lightning bugs in that one!

Great shots, Dan! Wish I'd headed down I-64 a little quicker so I could ahve stayed ahead of the storms, although the flying tree debris along 64 near the Kaskaskia River was interesting to say the least.
