Last night on the way home I saw some really powerfull orange lightning stikes. These strike were ground to cloud and nearly vertical with no branching arc'* you usually see.
When I first saw it out of the corner of my eye I thought it was some light show or something, but not once I started paying better attention. I grabbed my camera but by the time I go back to where I had a good view the front had moved off. :(
Anyone else ever see orange lightning? That was really weird.
I was coming back from New Jersey to my home on Long Island, NY and I'd have to say around NYC and such I saw orange-ish lightning too. When I was barely able to make out the moon between the clouds at times it seemed to have an odd tint also.
