Chase Trip Day 13 (June 28) Summary: Infrequent lightning near Plains, KS on the way back home (Part 4)
Summary & Images (part 4)
We were hoping for some lightning images after dark, and we finally
got some... although very infrequent... from a real small storm near
Plains, KS between 12:30 and 12:45am. There was maybe one flash every
4 or 5 minutes... but each one was fairly dramatic. There was one
brilliant cloud-to-ground flash that I just missed by seconds after
the shutter clicked off (I had the camera set up on 30 second
exposures instead of bulb.. d'oh!)
