Temperatures in Minnesota quickly dropped well below zero on Sunday, December 18, colliding with the much warmer waters of Lake Superior to create this amazing natural phenomenon. Check out this insane natural phenomenon of sea smoke formed a massive wall of the smoke on Lake Superior, making travel extremely difficult.

The temperature near Duluth Harbor hit -18 degrees on Sunday morning, according to a report, and the coldest point was the town of Embarrass at -38 degrees. The temperature of the water in Lake Superior, though, was far above the air temperature, creating this impressive wall of sea smoke. The fog is created when there’s an inverse in temperatures, with the air being colder than the water.

This apocalyptic-looking wall of sea smoke is one of the largest seen in recent years, none the less, still not as uncommon as you'd believe. It looks like it could have come out of some sort of a disaster movie!

The sea smoke in the harbor was captured in this video.
