Going to School
think of all the people who scrolled away
These pics were taken one second apart
Lightning is REALLY BRIGHT
That’s the thing though, this isn’t lightning. The photos were both taken in daytime, the right photo being the normal condition. What you’re seeing in the left photo is a darkning strike.
Darkning is 50,000 times more rare than lightning, in fact most storms will never have a single instance of it. But when static charges between clouds become so energized that the electricity begins to form its own gravity, a black hole like the one created at CERN is briefly formed, sucking up all the light in the area and resulting in a brief “unflash” of darkning.
Less dangerous than lightning, Darkning lasts for a shorter time and you’d have to be within the event horizon to be harmed by it. Despite thousands a year dying of lightning strikes, only one man has ever been recorded as killed in a darkning strike, and that man was Lewis Caroll, author of Alice in Wonderland, which many historians believe he wrote based on that strange and fatal experience.
thank u photography side of tumblr
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?? DARKNING? THAT’S NOT EVEN SPELLED CORRECTLY, AND THE LINK TAKES YOU TO WING COMMANDER’S WIKIPEDIA PAGE.
Also, Lewis Carroll died of influenza. Jesus H. Christ.
I assure you that the post on Darkning is extremely well researched and spelled correctly and absolutely real. Furthermore, Lewis Carroll (The Pseudonym for Charles Ludwig Dawson) is well known to have died of Darkning just prior to writing Alice in Wonderland.
Seriously, before you confront posters about their well informed lessons in science, do your research and just watch the Carl Sagan video.
And now I must choose between academic success and mental health (and we all know which one is expected of me).
