Lightning caught on tape with 7207 frames per second camera

We watch movies at 26 fps. At 7207 fps the moves are slowed 277 times so that we can see how the lightning evolves and chooses it’s path.

From the YouTube description:

A negative cloud-to-ground (-CG) flash captured at 7,207 images per second. A negative stepped leader propagates downward from the cloud and connects with the ground causing a bright return stroke. Filmed near Devils Tower, WY

No matter the scientific explanation I want to see more of these videos.
