The power of lightning

Lightning is defined to be “an atmospheric discharge of electricity, which typically occurs during thunderstorms”. A quite abstract technical definition, but does not describe what a lightnings looks alike … and especiallywhat humans think when they see and watch this. Two weeks ago I spend a day in Munique (Germany), and visited the “Deutsche Museum” (a big technical museum). It was indoor, and (only) 50.000 Volts … but a horrible feeling.

I took some pics in the darkness – and was not expecting to get such fascinating pictures, which much more look like art than like “hell”.
