One of the newest satellites available to the NOAA captured an incredible time-lapse video of storms bombarding the Central U.S. last night.

The Associated Press reported storms hit Wisconsin and Oklahoma, killing two people and injuring dozens more. According to the National Weather Service, two supercells formed in the Texas Panhandle Tuesday and then moved into Oklahoma.

From orbit, the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite 16 or GOES-16 recorded those storms with its infrared instruments.
