There was the longest storm ever here last night. It started about 7pm and was still going when we went to bed after midnight. We could see lightning illuminate the skyscrapers and the Pacific Ocean, with the effect being very similar to the Northern Lights. I saw types of lightning that I’ve never seen before – wavy horizontal lines travelling from one cloud to another, high up in the sky. Very like being inside a giant Plasma Sphere! Unfortunately my camera was not up to capturing the impressive light show, but I’ve included a couple of snaps – one before a lightning strike, the other during, which is so bright it looks like daylight, but I think you can see there is a slightly otherworldly glow about it.
