June 16 near midnight (1130pm CDT)… going into the early hours of June 17 2012 .. a severe thunderstorm blew just west by northwest of St. Louis Missouri — while recording from my front porch …….. the following occurred :
at just after the 2minute mark — a small ionized cloud of some kind appears BEFORE the lightning strike — sorry about my “wow!” but it was impressive.. didn’t see the little cloud until watching on the computer…
At about 3min 13 seconds — GREEN lightning
Then at about the 4min 55second mark to about 5min 30 seconds.. a strange transparent large glowing sphere appears.. and then is obscured by clouds fairly quickly…
Don’t know what it is.. plasma of some kind maybe?!
Facing South by southwest from south Saint Louis Missouri at about midnight 1150pm to about midnight CDT 6/16/2012
South Saint Louis, Missouri :
Shot with a different camera than the previous video — the previous camera which captured the first green lightning was a Sony non-HD Handycam… this current camera on the roof is a Kodak waterproof HD cam. Both captured the green lightning.
June 16th .. 1130pm to about 130am on the 17th … from the 2nd story of my house.. outdoor waterproof camera on the roof — facing West by Northwest.
The hue of the clouds goes from a reddish to a green hue.. the lightning … which was VERY intense .. had several GREEN flashes .. as the storm passed from SW to NE this happened… it was not power transformers blowing.. it was indeed the lightning itself.
