ICYMI: Earlier today the skies over Manhattan turned as black as a dark steer's tuckus on a moonless prairie night, and certain doom hung in the air. The weather was about to turn against us.

For about, like, twenty minutes. Then it lifted and left us with this blinding stark white sky that's out there now, which holds nothing but promises of rain.

But that dark sky sure was something. And reliable EarthCam was there to capture it in this stunning and surreal photo that looks like the poster for Roland Emmerich's next apocalyptic hit.
