the reason why there are so many of them so fast is because its sped up, thats from space zoomed in a bit while the satellite was passing or something, look how fast the storm gets closer to the camera...i think

Oh, that`s so beautiful. It`s not quite as nice as seeing the lightning from Earth, but still very beautiful.

That`s what it looks like from an airplane too. I was in a plane at ~36k feet, flying over a storm, and it was amazing to watch.
