Video Clip

  • Lightning Strike (1.14mb in WMV format [use shift click or right click to bring up save as dialog box])

    John Stevens writes:

    The eight images here show frame by frame stills from the video just before, during and after the lightning hit the tree. Note how the trees light up in frame 2 before going back to normal in frame 3, followed by the overexposure in frame 4 and then the actual bolt.

    These stills show damage to the Oak tree where the lightning hit.
