I think they are called ground sprites. Correct me if I'm wrong. I know the sprites that go upwards from the clouds scare the bejeebus out of pilots and fear of them has even delayed a few space shuttle missions.

Quite the phenomenon though.

With digital cameras its a lot easier & you don't have to pay for the film, you just have to keep taking pics & hope you catch one during a storm, if the camera has a "motorwind" type feature it's easier.

During a storm last year I got this, it's not the best quality but there is a big downward strike at 16 secs & at 47 two smaller bolts go back up.

This year has been terrible for electrical storms, for over a month we have been hammered with them, three weeks ago it blew up the regional phone hub, last weekend it was down for repairs, yesterday we had storms for 8 hours & the phone/ internet was off from first thing this morning until late afternoon :bang;

At least we got a double rainbow this evening :flop:

Go to google Earth or google maps and type the lat/long
29.9792458 N, 31 8' 3.11" E

This takes you to the King's Chamber in the Great Pyramid

299,792,458 m/sec is speed of Light.

This is a coincidence?
