    These are man-made. They’re triggered by rockets. “Lightning has been triggered by launching lightning rockets carrying spools of wire into thunderstorms. The wire unwinds as the rocket ascends, providing a path for lightning. These bolts are typically very straight due to the path created by the wire.” Very cool.

    That they were triggered by use of Betts Rockets?
    Reading about these is what helped me understand the multiple flash nature of big strikes and that it’s an effect caused by the ionization that occurred in the previous discharge.

    These lightning strikes are caused artificially by lightning rockets


  15. Military engineered lightning strikes.


  16. Aditya S

    These lightning strikes were intentionally triggered by the researchers?


  17. finkle

    They go straight.
    Some people created them using uv-laser to induce a channel of plasma that conducts electricity.
