Ultra-high-speed footage of lightning striking a television tower. The upward leader from the tower is likely triggered by a nearby cloud-to-ground lightning strike. Also visible are the extremely fast recoil leaders which retrace the faint leader channels. Filmed at 1000 frames per second, in Rapid City, South Dakota, USA, in summer.
