July 7th 2014 was a day of major storm outbreaks across the midwestern United States.
Late afternoon proved to be a kickoff for several large supercell thunderstorms to break out across the area which I reside — Saint Louis, Missouri.
Managed to get out the new waterproof outdoor multi-spectrum (IR,Visible light,UV) video camera, and capture approximately 30 minutes of video using multiple modes mixing between UV and IR.
The video of the storm blowing across South St. Louis, MO — sped up 8X for a time-lapse effect, can be viewed here:
Later in the night, from approximately 7pm CDT to 2am CDT, a 2nd line of strong cells blew across the area, producing an impressive display of lightning.
Here is a small glimpse of the amount of lightning which occurred during the second line of storms. Amazing to say the least!
