It looks like something out of a Scifi movie.

some great photo's!

my boss and some staff had to hitch a lift in a van from Switzerland to the uk from a friend who lives in Amsterdam but was at the same show in Switzerland...he drove them thru Europe, then via Eurostar to their home and is now heading back home to Amsterdam himself.

so there's been some really nice people offering to literally "go out out their way" to help during this air plane grounding dust anomaly.

Yet another proof of pure evil spitting out from Iceland!

Awesome looking photos, but they are photos after all. The coolness comes more from camera exposure than from actual sight.
If you saw that in reality you would be like: "What was that?... did it just... uh?... is that?... oh it's over."

Just like using a match to draw with light on photos.

Engadget reported on a new camera that can take 2,800fps at 1080p. There's an awesome video of a lightning strike on the page:

Speaking of lighting. I was looking at transformer explosions today on youtube and found this.

Funny, I thought the very same thing!
Didnt they have flashes of lightning like that when the volcano errupted in Godzilla 1980?
