HILO, Hawaii -

The Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope on Mauna Kea captured an amazing time-lapse video of Monday's thunderstorm.

The Cloud Camera is very sensitive and even very faint things in the sky can appear very bright.

The camera is facing east toward Hilo and takes a picture every 60 seconds.  With those pictures, it make a time-lapse movie.
