If you replay it you see the lighting bolt ricochet off that rock.

This came around a few years ago. 
Pretty sure it was Det-Cord and not lighting bunching along the "Ground"  :doofus:   :rotflmao:

Probably making the launch deeper.  ;)

I wondered if that is what the river thing was too Leech.  Seemed like a few explosions instead of one big one.  One heck of a boom though.

This video shows exactly how it was used. Watch the slow-mo in the gravel pit and water.  :happy1:

That lightning strike one did look like that Det cord didn't it?  It really riled up that crick.

I think that was the point I was making. I don't think the first video is a lighting strike at all.  Lighting goes to +/- Ground=the ground.  It doesn't skip sideways across the Ground. 
I still think they were blowing the landing channel deeper and someone had fun calling it lighting when they posted it.  It looks like a lot of logs started coming up in the channel and they were trying to clear the hazard out.  :happy1:

A little off topic—last September I was on business in Eastern Wisconsin and brought Mrs. fishwidow along for a couple days in Door County. When we got home, I saw something laying in the middle of the dining room floor. It was a piece of the telephone. We turned on the TV and had no satellite signal. Went outside to investigate and found the buried cable from the dish to the house had been blown out of the ground and was broken in half a dozen places. Also found the buried cable for the invisible fence was blown out of the ground nearby. Found a vertical stripe of no bark on a tall spruce tree and some of its roots sticking out of the ground. A lightning strike to that tree fried the telephone, satellite equipment, and the dog fence. The tree is still alive, but not looking real healthy. With the amount of damage, I’m kind of glad we weren’t home when it happened, although I wonder what the crack of thunder must have sounded like.

Ya it looked like all kinds of crap appeared out of the bottom of the crick.  Not a bad way to do it.

I turn 65 this week. Never in my life have I witnessed a lightning show like last night. It lasted for hours and was a bolt every few seconds. Some were the standard vertical type but many were side to side horizontal.

Very impressive but also very powerful and dangerous.

Since this is a lightning thread I probably should've posted this here. From yesterday's derecho:
