    Hello everyone!
    Thought you guys may enjoy this video that I shot.

    Shot at 240fps and slowed down to 10% speed. You can see the lightning weave through the clouds.

    Amazing video! I especially loved the branches of intra-cloud lightning originating from the main bolt near the beginning of the video! Really great, and please be safe out there!!

      Dr. @twcerikanavarro, it looks like this video of anvil crawler lightning produces the two main types of #lightning: cloud-to-ground and cloud-to-air.  We can visualize several “forks” produced the primary lightning strike.  It is fascinating but scary to watch either on video or in real time.  When lightning strikes, go indoors immediately.  Stay safe, and wait at least thirty minutes after the last lightning strike before going outside.  #3030rule 😀

      @brohde1 and @stormeagle, in case you were curious, lightning travels at a dexterous rate of 186,000 miles per second.  That is like Superman speed.  #lightningDYK ⚡️⏰

      @stormeagle, you are welcome!  By the way, do you have any plans to give yourself unicorn hair?  If so, then can you please do it appropriately?  Moreover, may I please see the finished product?  Thanks!  #DIYhairdye 😀
