Lightning Caught on Video
|Looking west at a developing thunderstorm over Richardson, Texas|
|Note the developing rain shafts to the left of this lightning strike. Looking south at a lightning struck a building in an office park near Plano Road and Arapaho.|
|Under the rain free base, looking east from the intersection of Collins and Plano in Richardson.|
|As I turned the corner from Collins to southbound Plano Road, a lightning bolt struck a building less than 100 yards away. Note the branch located in the upper right which was within 100 feet!|
|This image was taken near I-30 and Northwest Drive in Mesquite, Texas. The lightning strike on the left moved from left to right, creating a slightly "smeared" appearance to the image.|

These images were made using a Canon ES-5000 Hi-8 video camera and were digitized using Snappy.
