From Earth Science Picture of the Day:

The above image composite showing a vivid lightning display over Phoenix, Arizona was captured on July 23, 2006. It's actually a digital composite of a selection of twelve out of approximately one hundred 10-second exposures, and it represents the lightning activity over a period of nearly 20 minutes.

That is lovely. My hairdresser (who is my ethical judge also) took a wonderful lightning picture which he gave me. But then he keeps wanting to check that I still have it and that it's nicely framed and so on. He can't let it go and grow up. :)

I want to do an embroidery on lightning one day.

Phila, I can't find your e-mail address, so forgive this OT:

Could you recommend a good book on popular culture and how to analyze its effects in the U.S.?
