      They did not all strike at once, the stutter is held open for several seconds (more if there's no other light).
      A very good picture though, I'd be very proud if I'd taken it.

    #17 is not natural at all, those are chem trails, its called cloud seeding. look it up, learn it, fight it

    • Rudy

      Not at all. These are the Moring Glory clouds.

      Govt? Do your research. Or, here, let me do it for you.

      What causes these long, strange clouds? No one is sure. A rare type of cloud known as a Morning Glory cloud can stretch 1,000 kilometers long and occur at altitudes up to two kilometers high. Although similar roll clouds have been seen at specific places across the world, the ones over Burketown, Queensland Australia occur predictably every spring. Long, horizontal, circulating tubes of air might form when flowing, moist, cooling air encounters an inversion layer, an atmospheric layer where air temperature atypically increases with height. These tubes and surrounding air could cause dangerous turbulence for airplanes when clear. Morning Glory clouds can reportedly achieve an airspeed of 60 kilometers per hour over a surface with little discernible wind. Pictured above, photographer Mick Petroff photographed some Morning Glory clouds from his airplane near the Gulf of Carpentaria, Australia.

    I LOVE tornadoes!
    Beautiful and scary as hell at the same time.

    Had one hop over the top of my house a few years back. Scared the piss out of me!
    Dump a load of building materials all down our street.
    Luckily, nobody died in that one. Tore the hell out of downtown though.
