I briefly filmed a belt of Thunderheads forming along the North Westerly horizon 45 minutes after the sun went down. A few minutes later I filmed them again to monitor how much they grew, at this time not knowing that any of them would become active. As I was panning anti-clockwise I saw a brief flash in the corner of my right eye. I then positioned the camera at a large Multicell, which was still developing.

Unusually I had a clear shot of the entire cumulonimbus cloud and its thunderhead along with the surrounding atmosphere, and as a result I got some fantastic displays of Positive Flashes (P-Fs) and Cloud to Airís (C-As). The footage is a little rugged as it was ripped straight from VHS but it is still relatively impressive.

Despite being over 20 miles away to the north (calculated from the delay to the thunder) the two P-Fs it gave were heard as distant bassy rumbles from even from where I was stood.
