i see what you mean , that part of the fork of lightning was travelling perpendicular to the camera's lense , and we was getting a satalite view of it so to speak , interesting , note that i was pointing the camera slight upwards say 5-10 degrees , given that we are then viewing it at this mildly angled viewpoint to ground plain , would the bolt not show signs of this tunneled perspective within the clouds behind , i dont notice any illumination from the serrounding clouds as that part of the bolt was travelling towards us , wouldnt there be at least a cone of illumination in the clouds above ?

you mean like a plasma vortex, the water get wrapped up in the positive feelers, then explodes when the main charge hits that spot ?

i guess its as plausible as the many other suggestions so far

indeed very plausible ,im sure its happened many times , but what of the illumination of said bolt ? im just not seeing the clouds illuminated by this above that point where the zig and zags converge

anyway, smells like im repeating myself . or something repeating within me

Is that not just where the positive charge (streamer) from the ground meets the negative from the cloud?

It happens around 150 feet, so that looks about right

indeed thats a possibilty , i was watching some lightning videos of these upward lightning bolts last night , i suppose it could be that ,i ve captured one coming from below to meet one from above , but if thats the case and its coming from the ground , then why is it coming in from the side to meet the one from the left ? ide figure it would take more of a direct route than we can see , i guess it could have arced from upwards to leftwards just out of shot .. seems like this lightning was taking a guided tour of the sky before grounding itself .

shame it was peeing it down , i would have gone outside

Because the one coming from the left is attracting several on the ground and the one from the right passed the finish line first I guess.....

any idear's on the cost of them slow mo cameras with a wide angles lenses ?

it be great to get the whole race within shot , framerate rate through the proverbial cloud ceiling

something that can do

Your second video is perfect quality. I see what you mean by the knot lingering after the rest of the strike diminishes.

yes i thought that was odd , it being that last remaining visual imprint , fades out so very very quick , ide say like lighning but im choosing a nutrino's fart instead

weird everytime i tried to type in the question -580/why-does-lightning-strike-from-the-ground-up - it kept asking me if i was a bot , anyway , after many times of checking the check box no joy , i cant find the answer to that question on that site.

anyway cant search any further, i must get oiled and have my robotic tenticle's wire brushed

That was interesting how it was the last bit of lightning fluff to fade away into the "place where electricity goes to die". Wondering if anyone has ever captured one of those knots on tape like you did, one as intricate and fading out like it does, then slowed it down and zoomed in to share it with the world (as someone will probably tweet or sqyeett or whatever is the new in-social way of gabbing about yourself). This may be the best of the breed, or at least tied. Thanks for sharing it with us ATS low-lives/high-livin'folk first.

indeed , thats what made me think something re-stabilized after the strike, a blurd of prey may have been in the vacinity , wallop, then restabalised/vapourised

couldnt see any falling feather or Klingons afterwards though


as for the 2 days of bogging up my bandwidth , no worries ,it was worrth every penny to see all your bewildered and varied comments

its still stikes me as a bit odd

It's riding the lighning!


Some accounts speak of the creatures having wings, or having multiple tails. They are quite often dramatically depicted as being wreathed in crackling tendrils of lightning, and their voices were said to boom like thunder. Raijū were said to descend to the earth upon lightning bolts, to ride atop lighting, or to travel about in hovering balls of lightning.

are you suggesting electricity has sentience?

*a few neurons fire up in funbox's brain*

would then, this transformation, as your quote suggests, be suggestive of attempts to communicate?

interesting postulation
