The Sequence of the Storm – Stunning Stills of a Lightning Strike

These stills are taken from a video of lightning strikes on the night of September 11, 2017.  These still photos tell the story of an extended lightning strike – the changes in the sky are extraordinary.  This entire set of strikes occurred in about 1 and 3/10 or 4/10 seconds.

20 Still Shots of Lightning Sequence 2 – Filmed at 9:27pm; San Francisco September 11, 2017

There are 20 distinct flashes that occurred during this lightning strike that I’ve labeled Lightning Sequence 2.  I thought that was amazing!  The speed of lightning boggles the mind.  Luckily, I was able to capture video stills of these strikes.  This whole process of carefully capturing still shots, and carefully organizing the shots in order, took about 8 hours.

There were a few things that seemed particularly interesting about these flashes:

  • In some of the images where the sky appeared two different colors – a line divided the sky into two; in other shots of stills that night there were lines dividing the sky into three distinct sections of color
  • The lightning repeatedly struck the same spot over and over
  • The lightning lit up the entire sky turning night to daytime multiple times
  • The lightning in this sequence twice appeared in the same shaped bolts as in other videos I took that evening
  • This entire set of bolts and flashes occurred in the same location as Lightning Sequence 1.

I hope you enjoyed this sequence.  It is just stunning to see the depth of changes in the sky during 1.3 or 1.4 seconds.

Love, Solaris
