  1. Thought I would start a thread regarding the furthest distance lightning can really be observed from. Ive read a few times this past summer, during the storms of this year in particular including myself of observing and witnessing the flickering of lightning from well in excess of 100 miles away, perhaps nearing or exceeding 150 miles! I myself can certainly say that up here on the lincs/Cambs border have witnessed regular flashes from storms as far away as Wiltshire and Dorset, and more recently as far as the IOW! Someone on another forum claimed that they had witnessed from
  2. Might as well take up a new hobby in case the 2nd wave comes during Autumn/Winter. How to Paint a Lightning Bolt: Step-by-Step I plan to actually do this on a mirror but without the cloud's...or 🤔 I'll see..

  7. After my first trip with Netweather, storm chasing in Canada and USA, a look back at what occurs on tour. https://www.netweather.tv/weather-forecasts/news/9774-storm-chasing-in-the-usa-and-canada---my-first-experience-as-a-storm-chaser?fbclid=IwAR0M4JVIbdEE00Rc2kyYBHy_N3hW-NK0Vcmh3sp0AbxX38sgSGa39nJJSTo
  8. Long term viewer of this site and thanks for the great content. This is meant as a fun and hopefully informative thread to see to apprepciate some storms that may not be that well known. Perhaps even historical. I'll start with one from 1994. For those that haven't seen this, it's a fantastic delve into the past for what I believe was the mesocyclone on June 24th 1994. I remember this storm rolling into North London at around 7pm. A lightshow to remember! and part two being this...Notice how dark it becomes
  9. Came across this channel a few years back when he was creating his own mine in the US, this video recently popped into my subscription box. He talks about the science behind why you can hear thunder underground before you can hear it through the air, really interesting topic.
  10. Hi everyone, I fired up my Brinno TimeLapse camera a few nights ago to try and capture an epic thunderstorm that was in the distance. It appears that I succeeded :D https://youtu.be/DSSoFBvAszo
  11. I was doing my usual daily rounds on a GIFS site, and I came across this: https://i.imgur.com/2zzQ6Q6.gifv That is exactly what i captured on my old Sony Handycam, back in 2005. It actually shoots past me, and moves in a straight line like in that GIF. Until today, I was never totally sure what I had caught on tape, but that seals it for me.
