Thank you for all of the great comments everyone. I apologize for taking so long to respond, but I had my Dad in town for Father's Day, and I don't get to see him much.

This is a nine image panorama.

The cloud was moving fairly slow, maybe 15mph. My fiancee, Brittany, and I stayed out in front of it throughout the span of its life. The storm was never severe warned, and did not produce much lightning, for a Florida storm.

I had a rear facing Go Pro camera on the back of my car the entire time, that picked up some unique angles of it. I'll post a link here when I publish the video.
