Space 'n Lightning

Top Men have run across some rather amazing lightning movies - but these movies aren't your average, run-of-the-mill lightning movies. We bring you lightning viewed from space, and strange, colored, alien lightning that shoots into space. Wohba!

These movies were captured on various Space Shuttle missions. They give a high level point-of-view to some rather active storms.

These movies are just plain alien. Pilots claimed to have seen jets of lightning shooting upward from storms, but it wasn't until recently that the phenomenon was actually documented.

Heh, I actually did a report on sprites, jets, and elves in one of my Freshman meteorology courses. They're incredible!
