An amateur Australian astronomer has recorded rare flashes of space lightning in the skies above New South Wales.
David Finlay, 44, from Kiama in Australia’s south western state, captured the phenomenon, known as sprites, while out stargazing near his home Tuesday.
"I set my camera up, and literally within minutes – almost no time at all – I started to see the sprites flashing on the horizon,” Finlay told the West Australian.
"I couldn't believe it. I thought I would be lucky to capture one or two, which would have been fantastic, but they just kept happening.”
Sprites are caused by electrical discharge during storms but rather than going towards the ground, they travel up into space instead. The phenomenon, which is sometimes referred to as “upside down lightning” was striking at the same height in that meteors burn up in the atmosphere.
Finlay believes it might be the first time the sprites has been captured from the ground on video in Australia, adding: “I don’t think anyone has ever captured so many at once in any one go anywhere.”
yeeeaaaa. not sure ole boy is repping this well lol. ceartinly looks like he might have fcked over his good bacteria by doing this and thats why is gut looks as such. Acording to N mag malate kills bio-films. when i had my grandma take 4 at once the first night they are in she couldnt fall asleep for 2-4 hrs if i can remember and felt like she was on an energy drink, and hasant had a similar situation since with it when she was even taking 2 at a time sometimes. soooo am thinkin that it might have been a metal-dump or other related herX effect from the malate not just the ATP boost from the malic acid. i took 4 as n experiment and it was potent enough for me to loose all tiredness for the next 2-3 hrs into the late night early morning and pretty sure i peed like a gansta next mourning, colored bandana sht n all so AOR's sht is def potent AF for only 20$
