Inspired by a mysterious lightning bolt.

On May 14, 2018, a tempest straight from The Twilight Zone rained over Oklahoma.

Rather than scatter the Earth with jagged lightning bolts, the shrouds of dense clouds powering this storm spit a lightning bolt 50 miles upward, far enough to graze the ionosphere, or the edge of space. This violent, backward burst of electricity would soon be classified as one of nature's most mysterious atmospheric phenomena: A gigantic jet.

Gigantic jets are simply luminous beams born alongside regular lightning bolts, yet pointed in the opposite direction, away from the surface of the earth. They are a lot stronger than their downward-facing counterparts, sometimes even threatening space vehicles or other technologies floating in our planet's orbit. And this particular lightning bolt one was incredibly intense. It's considered the most powerful of its kind studied so far, carrying an estimated 300 coulombs of electrical charge, a whopping 100 times more than typical lightning bolts hold.

Mixed media on Acrylic bases, on canvas, 100cm x 100cm x 4cm.
