Video: Lightning in ultra slow-mo

Neat: two seconds of lightning slowed down to a minute and a half.

    That’s just amazing. I love the difference between the ‘preflashes’ that appear to be only a frame or two (9k Hz or faster) and the main ionization trail that builds and lingers.

    Truly spectacular capture. (btw – my domain is lightningsymphony, named for a song by a band in San Diego. Trivia, you know)

    That must have been a fairly intense two seconds!
