They don't sound like burns, though you're right that ligtning could enter the head and cause a burn there and leave the foot and cause a burn there. But that's not what the report says:
It says the socks are burnt. It doesn't say the foot is. Likewise, it says the hair is burnt, it doesn't say the head or the skin under it is. Are those the burn references you were looking at?
the left foot had burnt socks (marked by 13). No footwear.
- hair are burned on the right side of the head
May 28th just three days after presence of radioactivity was confirmed the case was officially closed.This is more than just peculiar given the circumstances.
Kolevatov kept a personal diary. Yuriy Yudin, the only survivor of the group, testified that it was with him on the last trip. The diary went missing.Judging by the pictures of Dyatlov group at least one of the cameras went missing.
Strange unidentified cloth "obmotki" was found near the bodies. This is an old version of protection for feet worn by soldiers in the Red Army. It is a long narrow band that was wrapped around shoes to protect feet of servicemen from natural elements. They were faded out in the 1940's during World War II, but many veterans kept it after their service. According to Yury Yudin no one in the group carried them.

I wonder what the pattern of horizontal lines are to the right of the lights in the photo.
The first thing I thought of was the fabric of the tent. They seem to be more in focus than the orbs of light, but that is hard to be sure of.

We are just beginning to understand the power of sound to do allot of things including lift objects. I have been on the receiving end of lrad and if you don't think sound can be a weapon your nuts lol. It can kill you. Explode your head like a water balloon if they wanted to. It can cook you like a microwave.

I was using the term 'orbs of light' as a landmark to describe where the lines/scratches were. I guess I should have referred to them as blob-shaped areas of exposure of light on the film... to avoid confusion.
I did read your post, thanks for the explanation.
I wonder if they fell into the ravine too. It's a possible explanation of their injuries, but it's not certain. If you read the group diary, they at points in their journey had encountered windy conditions where even when it wasn't snowing, it seemed to be snowing from the wind blowing snow off the trees, and the pass of their final campsite tended to be a windy place, so it's possible that poor visibility may have been a factor in falling into the ravine, if they did fall. The coroner's report stated the injuries were consistent with a fall, compression, or blast, so the coroner couldn't tell if it was a fall or not:
When I see posts referring to people falling into the ravine, I wonder if anyone did fall into a ravine. I haven't seen anything about that in the reports.
They attempted to build a fire near the cedar tree, where two of the bodies were found, as described on the screenshot below. Several branches had been removed from the tree.
Were there any indications that they had built a campfire after they left the tent? As in a pile of ashes, partially burned pine cones/wood or melted snow?

That made an idea pop to mind. Maybe this is silly but perhaps the furnace caught fire. They scrambled to get out and in an effort to save thier tent dumped snow ontop to put it out?
