Sheet Lightning (XL)
Ref.#80 0870xl ~ Sheet Lightning
On a summer night on Spencer’s Butte where I lived, I saw the flashes of light from an oncoming storm moving northward. I took the 4x5, a tripod, some rubber floormats, and loaded them into the car. I drove up to a clear vantage point, setup and waited. What I watched I did not expect. The flashes were not striking the ground but rather lightning streaking horizontally across the sky. I had never observed “sheet” lightning before.
