    Great! Now you need a macro lens, welding goggles, and high speed film to see in slow motion!

    The buzzing sound is also something to discuss.

    As I watch this and listen, I like imagining what it was like for the ancients to experience the thunderbolts of the Gods.

      Yes, I had the same impression especially towards the end when the air flow caption appears to explain the dancing of the arc up the left probe. This video helped me conceptualize how much super sonic winds would have pushed the giant light bolts around our planet’s surface creating the geology of Death Valley which I enjoy exploring.

      Electricity has a terrifying sound just at this small degree of current, I can't imagine what planetary scale current would seem like. We get lightning of course, but not arcs that last for a few seconds or longer. That would be intense.
