It's not lightning, but don't be picky. July was a slow month for storms on Florida's Space Coast. These fireworks occurred at Space Coast Stadium in the Viera area of Melbourne, Florida. Image from slide. July 20, as seen over the Indian River Lagoon near Patrick Air Force Base, birds flew ahead of the storm. Image from slide.




The July 20 storm produced a dramatic shelf cloud as it moved east over the Indian River Lagoon. Images from slides.




More storms formed to the west on July 20. Here, lightning strikes near I-95 in Brevard County, as seen through the car windshield. Image from video.




August 4, again over the Indian River Lagoon, another shelf cloud loomed. Image from slide. The storms fell apart almost as soon as they got together. Image from slide.
