Astronaut-Bird's Eye View of Lightning from Space

Posted by on

Astronaut Tim Peake is at again, releasing a time lapse video from space of lightning striking in several different places on the Earth. I don’t think I’ve ever even imagined what lightning looks like from space, but this confirms that it sure ain’t Zeus throwing down bolts from the clouds. Lightning always feels like such singular events here on the ground, but it’s an interesting reminder that it could be occurring anywhere on the map. There’s a “San Diego” Chargers joke somewhere in there….

Here’s a link to the gif you can watch for hours on end.
