Lightning Over The Pacific


Two Strikes In Quick Succession (Photoshopped)

This sequence is shown first in slow motion and then in near real time. First is an upwards cloud-to-cloud strike followed by a small triggered ground to cloud strike. This in turn triggers a strke down from the cloud. Finally, concluding with another small ground to cloud stroke.

This sequence show step leaders from the ground up and cloud down connecting to form a stike.
