Next Contests

3rd of September strong thunderstorm

In the afternoon of the 3rd of September, a strong storm broke down in central Italy with very violent electrical events. Tens of thousands of lightning strikes the peninsular skies while our meteor scatter station at the APA Latina observatory was active. At that time the GRAVES transmitter was not in operation (perhaps due to maintenance) and, although the frequency does not lend itself to good lightning reception, thousands of very strong electrical discharges have been captured by the system. Here a short video of that moment related to the captured lightning.
