So I was flying home from Las Vegas after a lovely stay in Salt Lake City for a couple days….. yeah… that was exciting…

but there was a really cool thing that I got to see on the way home, while flying over eastern Colorado (I was on JetBlue so I got to see the tracker thing on my screen so I knew where I was) there were severe thunderstorms, luckily we were flying well above them so they did not affect the flight and being a smooth flight.

It was really one of the coolest things I have gotten to see, it looked like the 4th of July in the sky below, there were flashes one after another, almost constantly, you could see up to 8 different ones all going at once. Sometimes just seeing the clouds being lit up, and sometimes seeing the actual bolts shooting  between the clouds.

It was kind of like watching an old movie where they are bombing a city at night, and you are in the bombers. You see the flashes lighting up the sky and clouds below you. If I did not know what it was, I would have thought someone was bombing colorado.

It was truly one of the coolest things I have ever seen, unfortunately it kept me awake for WAY too long because I watched it for well over 2 hours, and then again over Ohio I think it was where there were some more storms, but not as big as the ones out in Colorado.
