2 Lightning Strikes

Last night we had 2 remarkable lightning strikes.  The first seemed to go on forever rumbling through the clouds and then it culminated with an apocalyptic explosion that felt like it hit the house....  A couple of minutes later there was another, more subdued strike.  Cam 3 picked up both.

This was the big one.  You can tell how close it was because the image is completely overexposed...  Way too close for comfort...


The second one was at a much safer distance over by Useless Bay....


I have added a new link on my site that is a lightning map.  It is located just below the CAPE forecast.

Meteor Image On Night Of Wolf Super Moon

On the night of the Wolf Super Moon, my night cam caught a very nice meteor.  Very rare to even be able to see a meteor with this much "light pollution".  It turned out to be a nice image with Mt. Baker illuminated by the moon...

Super Moon Tonight....

This month we will have two Super Moons.  One on January 1 and the second on January 31.  We got a little preview of it last night.  It will start to rise at 4:34pm and be visible on Cam 3.
