Just a Nice Thunderstorm

After all the bad weather in Oklahoma recently and the loss of some great storm chasers at the top of their game, it's nice to have a nice summer storm come through without huge amounts of wind or hail.

I went out to one of my typical locations a couple miles north of Kechi and attached the lightning detector to the camera.  Lightning was a little close.

I believe this is positive stroke lightning that struck around 2 miles to the NW of my location.  There were multiple flashes of the lightning although I think I caught 3 of the same bolt.  This lightning can create close to 300,000 amps and 1,000,000,000 volts.
