Q-Burst Lightning Radar

These three photos captured by 'Thomas Ashcraft' at his lab in New Mexico,

were created by Q-burst lightning events.  Events like this are being received and plotted

in real time by this site in San Antonio Texas, and one site in Sweden.  This is not

caused by "Normal lightning"!  These are called TLE events.  They are just millisecond

 long blinks of light above the clouds.  Special equipment was required to capture these photos.

It is natural to try and equate these as the same.  They really are three different things!
