Lightning In Slow Motion

August 12, 2008 at 12:53 pm (amazing things, movies/video/clips) ()

Take a look at this short, gorgeous clip of lightning, slowed down to a speed at which the movements of its dendritic tendrils can be observed by the naked eye.

Edited to add: Those first few seconds look incredibly similar to the lights I see when I get migraines. Just like that, with my eye as the sky. I’ve been trying for years to accurately explain them to people; I’m really glad to have such a perfect example to point to from now on.
