totally random find while stumbling around in slow motion videos on youtube

Holy cow this is amazing lightning video! The annotations label the various leaders.

I grew up in a part of California that has summer lightning storms, but even those amazing storms weren't like storms can be in other parts of the US and the world. Lightning still enthralls me, rather than scaring me.

I sat through one storm in Arizona, once, under shelter, watching the occasional distant glow of a transformer exploding under a strike. That was enough of the big stuff.

Wow, that's gorgeous. I miss summer thunderstorms, but the general weather around here mostly makes up for it.
