Space lightning

Mother nature never stops surprising us, and so it seems she's done it again with lightning. We've known about space lightning for a few years now, but to actually see it captured on film during the recent nasty storms over Texas, was just a great treat.

A photographer in Texas snapped the picture Wednesday night as that line of severe weather was striking the region. An  incredible display of "Sprites" was seen dangling over a strong t-storm near Dallas.



These so called "Sprites" are a rare form of lightning that shoot out from the top of thunderstorms straight into outer space.  The picture also captured a meteor flying by. A two for one treat!

As storm season kicks up in the Plains, so does "Sprite" season.
