      2nd attempt to get this posted onto the CAS forum.  I hope this works this time…

      On the NASA APOD website page is an amazing photo accompanied by a very short video (half a minute thereabouts) of a very rarely seen Giant Jet seen over Puerto Rico.

      Here it is – what a phenomenal spectacle!  Caputered only last week.  The link, below, offers a brief yet concise explanation to the way the Jet occurs.

      Awe inspiring, Laurence, thank you.

      I must admit I was not thinking lightning, and first thought it was an upward bound jet.
