Night Lightning

Out of the Retreating Supercell

Out of the Retreating Supercell

A heavy-precipitation (HP) supercell sloshed off into the distance, leaving behind refreshingly cool and moist air, a more robustly filled reservoir, some internally lit mammatus clouds, and one very nicely forked strike between its upper reaches and some distant several square inches of ground. The tan-orange glow on the water and cattails came from sodium vapor streetlights that illuminated the boat ramp I was using as a vantage for the lightning show.
