Pretty cool find bigx01.


Is there a link you can provide us with? I wonder why the Asians are the only ones who seem to get these spectacular footages?

The first stroke is most likely the feeder element, climbing up from the ground. Most of the current is contained/generated in the cloud(s), and when the circuit is complete, the retrun stroke (cloud to ground) appears milliseconds later as a second, distintive stroke.
