Hello fellow ats'ers i was wondering if this is some kind of natural phenomena or something else? There is a lightning storm in only one cloud and no sound?

Heat Lightning


Heat lightning is a misnomer for the faint flashes of lightning on the horizon or other clouds from distant thunderstorms that do not have accompanying sounds of thunder. This occurs because the lightning occurs very far away and the sound waves dissipate before they reach the observer.[1] Heat lightning was named because it often occurs on hot summer nights and to distinguish it from lightning accompanied by audible thunder and cooling rainfall at the point of observation

Funny you should mention., I am looking at what almost looks like a mushroom cloud in a perfectly clear night sky outside of Yuba City, CA. This cloud is producing a lot of lightning with about 1 flash every 30 seconds or so. There is no thunder or sound from it whatsoever. Very strange sight.

This happened here in Montreal the other night.
There were flashes of lightning in the sky but no thunder, and what was more strange was that the lightning was going from other places, not just one direction like it usually does.

That was the same night that there was a weird orange thing in the clouds.
It looked like another sunset, but there was one already happening to the left.
It looked a lot like that HAARP thing that some people have shown on YouTube.

It happened in Nashville back in April. Green Lightning every 25-30 seconds with no thunder. I don't remember any wind at the time, which was really strange.

I'm currently about 30 miles from Yuba City. I'm watching the same cloud. It seems to be the only cloud in the sky and every few seconds the whole thing lights up. Looks to be moving towards you... fast.

Never seen anything like it before.

I'm in southern Fl..We had this the other night..I seriously thought it was the mother ship or something.

I was looking out my window as this was all going on at about 4am and the lightning was hitting only a few lots over..no thunder within my range but off in the distance you could hear a slight roar here and there.

I think it was only in a small batch of clouds because it passed over the house within 20 minutes, but the lightning was insane it was literally like a strobe light.

I don't know if it's or not as I've only lived here for a year and this will be my 2nd summer here.

I saw the same thing in Yuba City, CA last night. I've never seen anything like it. It was one tubular mushroom cloud and the entire sky was clear. Even on top of the mushroom cloud was clear. It was located right above the sutter buttes. The lightning was different colors and kept hitting the same spot, up and down for quite a while. Later it dissipated and only struck at the bottom of the cloud. Very strange.

Your description is spot on. When I first noticed it, it looked like it was over or near Williams but then it started moving very quickly east. I tried to get some of it on video but my camera sucks, all it picked up was the black sky.. no details.

At right combination of air temperature layers, hot above, cold below, actually, I forgot the correct direction...

The sound coming from a distance could be **refracted** note the term, either skywards or to the ground, instead of coming straight to you so you either hear no sound or hear sounds from great distance.

Google up 'sound refraction' to see my point.

Heat Lightning refers to a lightning flash that is seen from the horizon that does not have accompanying thunder.

At this time of year on warm, humid nights, the phenomenon known as “heat lightning” is very common. The sky will seem to flicker with light; and even on a seemingly clear night with stars, you may see flashes. No sound accompanies the flash, although if you are listening to an AM radio, you’ll hear crackles of static at the same time you see the flash.
