Even as a little kid who wanted lightning to strike me so I could get superpowers, I’ve always loved seeing the electric bolts get speared down from the clouds. Seeing lightning was always cool, it was the lagging and crackling thunder that was the scary part of any storm. That’s why this video of slow motion lightning is great, no thunder, just bolts of lightning tagging the ground.
The strong and fast lightning isn’t nearly as fun as the electric tentacle version.
