June 18, 2013:
lightning over Port Canaveral, Florida

June 18, 2013: This was a spontaneous, get-off-the-couch chase starting about 9:30 p.m. I saw flashes of lightning, checked the radar and decided to head to Port Canaveral, not far from my home in Brevard County, Florida. While the lightning wasn't so close that it sizzled, I did catch a few bolts in an atmospheric setting. Share
