A technical question, if I may: What the hell is going on there?


creathir

This appears to be an induced lightning test. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lightning_rocket


ryati

> triggered lightning


_i_am_a_dragon_

So, in other words, *a controlled shock*


fernanchistera

Time to fix you with a controlled shock


GxZombie

A small portion of the voices like the controlled shock, most don't say much after.

ksaMarodeF

Good to know lightning never strikes in the same spot 8 times.


Moni_10940

Run, titans are here


Chexreflect

I was wondering how far down I would have to go before seeing attack on titan comments. Not very far.


Moni_10940

I was actually insulted by not having a aot comment on top


The_Afflicted25

I think it was caught on a high frame rate camera and slowed down? I’m just guessing though


longjaso

I've actually seen lightning just like that in real life (only one time during a big storm I was watching in my backyard). Ive never figured out what causes lightning to act like that though.


Jetorix

Tom Cruise saw the same thing in his back yard before the attack.


Alejandromer

Yes! I was pausing the vid to check if there was a guy riding the lighting down


ArtichokeDiligent579

Me too, i was like 12 or less at the time, lived in colombia, and had to walk through the big terrace on a third floor to shower, was in the shower getting ready to school at like 5 am and it was pouring and the lightning touched like 150 yards away. I needed a second shower.


dpforest

At 31 years old, nothing on this planet terrifies me as much as bad weather. It is completely uncontrollable and all you can do is hope it blows over. I’ve been through 4 tornados and it’s scarier each time, hearing that literal monster outside, reaching kilometers into the clouds as in destroy everything in its path. So fucking scary.


EncasedShadow

I've lived through tornados and I've lived through earthquakes. I hate earthquakes more. Grassfire, flood, hurricanes, tornadoes? We have visible signals for that. "Raining pretty hard and wind picking up, better get to the basement" Earthquakes just happen. Lovely day when suddenly you're thrown around like a little kid getting whomped in a bouncy castle.


dpforest

Sure, at least there is a warning system in place for tornados. I’ve never been through an earthquake but flash floods can come out of nowhere and kill more people annually than any other weather disaster. We can track storms and see which ones *might* produce a twister, but we still cannot predict and do not fully understand why tornados form. Right now it looks like a 40 minute average warning time for a tornado, but some of them are just so big (Joplin, for example) that a warning system doesn’t even matter. Nature do be scary.


spaceplanepilot2

Once there was this thunderstorm I saw where the sky was fully light for about 30 minutes. There was a huge amount of blue lightning that struck the sea and yellow that stayed in the clouds, and there were so many frequent simultaneous hits that the sky was constantly light even though it was at the dead of night.


PM_ME_STEAM_KEY_PLZ

It’s triggered lightening. Usually by a small rocket with a trailing copper wire.

There is lightning, and then there is a smite.

I would go over there asap, it is not every day that Thor stops by for a visit. Gotta get that Autograph!


egg1234567890

I would run because if it's Zeus he will most likely rape you then you will have to be tortured by his wife for being raped. Man the the Greek gods are fucked up.

Did you go looking if some "lightning glass" formed? Those are crazy expensive and extremelly saught after!


scofofosho

You think that person ran over to where all of the lightning fell constantly and repeatedly? Give it like an hour or two man


Ksradrik

And get outcompeted by people that dont value their lives? That sounds awfully uncapitalistic of you... one could almost say socialist... which is just one step away from communist, which makes you my friend, a russian spy.

1999GGO

This seems like zeus is trying to kill someone and it keeps moving away just barely. Imagine trying to kill an ant with a 3m stick while she is trying to move away, you gona miss a few times and when you have her pined down you gonna make sure she is dead. Similar to this the first small strikes was missed and the final one was making sure whatever zeus wanted to kill is dead.

I don’t know if I should feel sad for all the bacteria that died or afraid for the amount of [mutant bacteria](https://www.newscientist.com/article/dn6525-bacteria-are-genetically-modified-by-lightning/) that was made.


tuggerooney

No sound?!


Coffee-ly

Oh sorry, I forgot to enable the sound, [here's](https://gfycat.com/closedexcitablefairyfly) one with sound :)


YoshSchmengie

I would tend to agree with this fellow's articulate and nuanced description of the event.


afternidnightinc

I wonder what causes it to act that way?


Raving_Lunatic69

It's not natural lightning, it's man-made


eyrikur

Name checks out.


PinkClouds94

How do you know?


Raving_Lunatic69

Look close and you can see the wire. It is probably a rocket and wire test or something of the like.


Spartanwolf66

Somebody REALLY pissed Zeus off this time...

That's not lightning that's definitely someones ultimate ability being charged or used

You can see the camera setup on the right side. This is for a film, probably some generated lighting.

F1stLa5t

Attempted a flimsy goggle on "seed lightning" years ago I watched a documentary on harnessing lightning power use. The "seed" was a toy rocket attached was a thin copper line, the result looked much like this. I'm not an electrician and it was awhile ago, but I think the problem was storage.


farmer_dane

This looks like a terminator just landed there

I legit scrolled over this just as a bolt of lightning came thundering down next to my house. Holy Smokes!

JackTheBehemothKillr

This isn't that terrifying, actually. This is a spot in (I think, Florida) where they study lightning and to do so they wait for conditions to be right and then fly a rocket up into the clouds with a fine copper line attached. So this is probably one of the most predictable lightning strikes in the world
