Reports & Pictures Chase Day 13 - New Mexico

Recommended Posts

Started the day in Lamar (C Eastern Colorado) with a chase target in mind of Hobbs to Carlsbad and that played out very nicely with 2 LP Supercells coming off the mountains and onto the Plains.

 

Both were visually stunning and both were getting their arses kicked by a tornado warned storm heading northbound in the 500mb Southerly Flow.

 

Ended the day in Carlsbad with severe storm after severe storm just to the west of town, it was here we also think we have captured an extremely rare instance of ball lightning, with 2 visual, 1 video recording and 2 Cameras picking up a fast moving green orb.

 

Regards

 

Paul S

Nice captures Paul, looks like severe warned storms are still rumbling away close to Carlsbad and Roswell. Hope we get to see ball lightning captured later?

I hate you all :-). Jet lag is kicking my butt and you're chasing in a state that's not on my list! Did anyone shoot the ball lightning?

Another great day in the Netweather house 

 

However not only did we see three supercells but I actually saw ball lightning for the first time in my life. Could you Adam & Eve it. Photos and videos taken by a couple Graham & John Finney.

 

I also went with my camera and took some lightning shots.

The video will be telling as the movement of these little known phenomena has been reported as mainly horizontal but often non-uniform in both velocity and vector.Many theories as to their cause and structure.

Just seen the Super Slo-Mo of this and it does indeed match that description Neil, very excited about this.

That's fascinating Paul. I'd be very interested in seeing the video as will many others I expect - decent footage of these events is very rare.

Both shots were shot outside in clean air on a hotel balcony, also have video evidence with the same thing as well, would that be internal camera reflections as well on a video camera ?
