At least 10 lightning strikes seen - 18.8.2022 at 17.30 - 18.8.2022 at 19.30 Nokia Observation number 108697

Visibility IV / V

Aki Karjalainen, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

The almost continuous rumbling and flashes lasted for a long time. I don't own a flash trigger, so I shot the flashes by video. From the still images captured from the video, I compiled this composite image of the flashes of lightning seen during about seven minutes around 7 p.m. It's a bit difficult to count the number of separate lightning strikes, but there are twenty flashes in this picture.
