Ever wondered what lightning strikes really looked like? Tom Warner recently captured some incredible footage in Rapid City, South Dakota. He captured over 9,000 images per second and this 1.5 minute video lasts only 2 seconds in real time!

This video shows multiple lightning flashes flying up from different towers. First off, a downward positive ground flash triggers upward flashes from seven distinct towers, of which we can see only three in the clip.

Kind of amazing to see how much power is generated by lightning. It’s too bad that we can’t yet harness like Doc Brown did in Back to the Future.
