Amazing Film Of Lightening Captured At 7,207 Images Per Second

My wife hates lightening and thunderstorms, so does our dog as well, but I love watching Mother Nature do her best to scare the bujesus out of us. It was one of the reasons why I moved back east from Vancouver – nothing beats the awesomeness of a mondo thunderstorm.

The big thing is though that those incredible lightening strikes happen so fast that they are almost over before you’ve had a chance to really enjoy their majesty.

Well thanks to Tom A Warner we can now see a lightening strike captured at 7,207 images per second, or in other words you can say wow before t he end of the lightening strike.

About the Author

Steven has been around the tech world long enough to see most of the stuff we think of cool happen before which leads to a certain bit of cynicism that has contributed to him being known as the cranky old fart of the Internet. Besides sharing some of the goodness that he finds with you here at 42x you can also find him curating some digital goodness at Winextra (tech type stuff) and Rotten Gumdrops (for your daily dose of WTF).
