Spectacular slow-motion footage of lightning strikes

I drove through this Monday PM and witnessed some of the most spectacular lighting strikes i’ve ever seen. Video hardly does lightning justice as it spans the horizon and lights up the sky from night to day but, seeing it in slow-mo comes close.



Yeah, I saw a GOOD one yesterday. I am small.


Wow, I really got a charge out of watching that, it was positively electrifying! Really, the whole thing was well-conducted, letting the high-tension build until one is ready to bolt, then charging off in a shocking new direction. I’m currently so wired I should go donate plasma…


Tell Thor to aim a little more northwest…
