    The music in the video was turned down way down… and, as a delightful synchronicity, my background Infected Mushroom just happened to sync almost perfectly. Recreated below… I could have probably tweaked timing a bit, but this is how I experienced it:

    Back on the 29th, I was taking a red-eye over central Canada, and treated to an amazing view of a severe lightning storm going utterly ballistic with lightning a few thousand meters below and beside the plane.  One of the most amazing things I’ve seen with a naked eye.

    If I let myself watch these NASA images in real-time, I don’t think I’d be able to let myself blink.

    What was the music? It sounded like something from the Mass Effect series.

    I had to watch this like 3 times during my lunch break, it was so awesome.  It really called to a child hood sense wonder of a world with so many things to discover in it.  For some reason the soundtrack from Final Fantasy 3 popped in my head, and I found Terra’s theme on youtube, which syncs up surprisingly well.

    I wonder what video format this was shot in.
