Centennial Ridge Lightning Strike

Thanks to Laramie correspondent Galen Wolk for sending me this incredible lightning strike photo on Centennial Ridge in Southeastern Wyoming. The photo was actually captured RANDOMLY from a webcam set to take a picture every ten minutes. Webcam guru Sam Trautman just happened to see it on the feed and was able to save it before the image changed. There was talk that the lightning may have actually triggered the camera to shoot, but the theory was that it probably would have messed up the software as well. Pretty amazing really. Thanks Guys!
