Thanks for this and nice to hear from you again via your lovely rainbow photo.
I live in Yate, south Gloucestershire so not too far away from your whereabouts. Yesterday was certainly a day for rainbows, must say! They were bright and vivid and filled the whole sky. Your photo captured what I saw.
Thanks again and best wishes.
Many thanks Laurence
indeed a great rainbow day

Brilliant shot, as ever, from you, Mike!
What a capture, eh?!!?
Thanks for sharing this marvel with us.
I wish you a very nice and happy Christmas and all that is best for you in the New Year,
Yes Laurence thanks very much. I did send in to Ian at CAS a series of 4 photos of a storm that was going on at the front (otherside) of the apartment block away from my view overlooking the sea. These lightning ‘threads’ were overreaching the building. One has two such threads one from the right and one from the left like they were hand shaking.
I also pointed out that the very ends of this lacy lightning was either pale orange/pink or blue. Not remembering this storm fully as it started away from my view I am not sure if it was a quick whizz bang kind of storm or one that lasts for some hours. I believe the former so this might be just inter-cloud lightning. Lightning types in my experience varies depending on the type of storm. A quick convection storm equalising the days energy imbalance has one form but a long three storm starts with this type moves to dangerous down strikes and then ‘anvil crawlers’ as the storm swells and moves by.
And a Happy Christmas and New Year to you too.
Thanks, Mike, for your informative reply. Much appreciated!
Lightning, so I have read in various journals etc is far higher in terms of temperature than that of our Sun, like 5 times higher.

Best wishes renewed to you.
