Cloud Lightning 2 on 11-14-07

A storm has come in, meaning no astrophotography, but that doesn’t mean no fun! I took the DSLR out and took 60 long exposures (10 seconds) and 3 of them contained lightning. We sure can use the rain and while I’m sorry I won’t be able to get comet photos or the moon tonight, my lawn and plants are happy and I’m sure everyone else in this part of the country is happy too. Here are the other two lightening photos I got:
