An upward lightning flash initiated from a TV tower in Rapid City, SD. Filmed at 7,207 ips the positive polarity leader moves upward and branches into two primary channels. The right channel is weak and unstable and exhibits prolific recoil leader activity as the branch struggles to establish stable growth. The entire sequence spans about 1/2 of a second.

In the late 80s I started investigating UFOs and crop circles and joined the CCCS (Centre for Crop Circle Studies) and a local group researching strange sightings and reports along the south coast of Dorset (UK). In the early ’90s I started my own research group called SPS (Strange Phenomena Studies), this was renamed in 2004 to Cryptoworld.
