Thunderstorms Captured by the Keck CloudCam

Our new CloudCam is undergoing testing. It assembles a video each night, just like the original CFHT CloudCam. The website is not quite public yet, but I had to share this one…

Heather mentioned at breakfast that she had been watching thunderstorms on CloudCam as she ran the telescope through the night. Thanks to the new camera we can all enjoy the spectacle.

  1. Andrew – that is pretty incredible! Didn’t detect any sprites, but then again, don’t know how much higher than the storm they would be. How close is the duty cycle (exposure:interval) to 100% ? Thanks for posting! -Dean
