🌩 Lightning at 1,000 Frames per Second

The editing and overdramatic production music makes this look like a made for television commercial, but the captured lightning strikes are worth seeing scrawl to the earth:

Photographer Dustin Farrell spent over a month traveling some 20,000 miles for the sole purpose of filming thunderstorms around the United States. Using a pricey Phantom Flex4K high-speed camera he filmed lightning strikes at 1,000 frames per second, resulting in impressive footage that shows the remarkable complexity of electricity in the atmosphere.

Now this next compilation video, in my opinion, is a thousand-point-twenty-one jigawatts times more exciting: ⚡

  1. The dramatic strikes are over the top enjoyable with that music. It’s perfect! The real shots were fun, but I wouldn’t watch them again. I would watch the slo-mo ones over and over.
