Twilight Lightning in Storm Towers

4 W of Tecumseh, OK; 15 Apr 2013

Short animation of tripodded still imagery.
Use the controls above the images to stop, start, step forward and backward, and change loop speed. Shove the speed bar all the way to the right for fastest animation.

Direction of view is SE. Image interval is irregular at 43 images (6 minutes from first to last). Time lapse exposure varies due to differing brightness of lightning and variable aperture durations. The view encompasses a rapidly left- (NE-)moving, elevated thunderstorm in front of a separate, right-moving supercell that is mostly hidden from view. Because the images were taken for lightning capture, the interval is irregular; still, you can get a good idea of the evolution of the convective turrets.
