This amazing video shows what lightning looks like when slowed down to 9,000 frames per second. Even if you’ve seen lightning in slow motion before, this video might surprise you. Even at extremely slow speeds, many of the bursts and flashes that go on during a lightning strike happen in what appears to be real time, while the main bolts last for quite some time. It’s definitely an… illuminating video. Har har.
