Hey Space Placers!
I have been in all kinds of weather, including the eye of Category 5 typhoon.I have never seen such a constant display of lighting as I captured in this 1 minute 47 second video taken on 7-2-14. I could have kept filming for a few more minutes before the sheer number of lightning bolts started to diminish.
The atmosphere was so full of heat and humidity yesterday in Central VA that it had to let loose. Hardly any rain fell which surprised me.
On this day of aphelion when the Earth is furthest from the Sun in it orbit around the Sun the atmosphere is ready to pop again and Hurricane Arthur is making his way up the Atlantic Coast.
To my American readers, Happy and safe 4th of July.
