A picture I took last weekend
    #3049724 - 08/25/04 07:50 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

I walked out of my house at about 10 pm Saturday night and noticed lightning flashing on the distant horizon to the North. So I jumped in my car and drove to the Northern edge of town (so as not to have any city lights in the picture) and I took a few shots. This is one of my favorites.

The 4 stars in a box shape on the left are actually the 'cup' part of the Big Dipper (Ursa Major) and the bright star at the very top-center is Polaris (The North Star). I estimate the thunderstorm was at a distance of about 50-60 miles away. The lightning bolts you see are actually hitting the ground inside the Nevada Test Site. Also, there was another closer storm cell on top of the mountains to the right of the picture. You can see the clouds lit up at the right from lightning in that storm.
