Skywatch Friday 154

From last Saturday evening -- these are from right around sunset to two hours after. We had heavy cloud cover and breezy conditions as a storm was moving in, which accounts for the hazy quality of these. The storm hit not long after they finished the fireworks. In fact, watching from across the lake as we were, we saw it moving in. About ten minutes into the thirty-minute show, there was lightning in the clouds. Twenty minutes in, as the storm drew nearer Madison, we would see the occasional cloud-to-ground strike "next" to the fireworks (the lightning was actually a few miles off yet, but looked like it was directly right of the fireworks). It was cool and freaky all at the same time, and I wish I could have captured one of those images. Thankfully, we made it back to the car and were almost home before it started to pour.
