Slow motion lightning over South Dakota at 2,000 fps

From ZT Research‘s Tom A. Warner, watch this high speed video of lightning, filmed during a storm over South Dakota:

My daughter got some nice high-speed camera captures of lightning while I drove. We chased a small storm system from Rapid City to Wall SD on the evening of 12 July 2015. Captures were made using a Vision Research Miro 4 recording at 2,000 fps.

Warner’s videos are well-known thanks to this incredible 2011 video in which he captured lightning at at 7,207 images per second.
