This magnificent photo of hail streaks in Colorado will totally blow your mind Stephen Pete Peterson/Facebook

Stephen Pete Peterson captured an unbelievable photograph of white hail streaks near Colorado Springs, Colo., on Tuesday evening, which, according to the Weather Channel, are caused by hail falling out of strong thunderstorms as the storm moves.

Hail pieces as large as 1.25 inches in diameter fell from the sky that day, the Weather Channel reported.

“A massive hail storm heading east,” Peterson wrote on Facebook. “I was on the back side of it with the sun shining on the hail coming down. The dark area is rain and the light is hail. I only had a few seconds to get the pic with the sun shining on the hail.”

Peterson said the photo was shot with an HDR setting and wasn’t photoshopped.

Absolutely INCREDIBLE!
