Ciao Alberto The sky is amazing! Questa foto mi piace molto! Complimenti i saluti, Syl

Thank you Syl, I live in this place since 1993 but i never saw this kind of meteo before. I guess that it was raining over the MXP Airport and the lights of the runway made the rain visible. Unfortunately that lights are very bad for astrophotography! Saluti to you too.. Ooops! Potevo risponderti in italiano! Ciao Alberto

Alberto esta foto me hace pensar que la tierra se está elevando hacia el cielo. Al resto de visitantes no olviden que está foto está relacionada con actividad eléctrica.

Thx Wilber, i'm not sure i understood correctly the meaning of "Al resto de visitantes no olviden que está foto está relacionada con actividad eléctrica." Actividad electrica : of the humans or of the skies?

That orange light in the middle is due to rain falling over the airport illuminated by the very strong sodium lights of the airport runway. Of course on the left you can see a lighting too that is due to electrical activities of the sky.

I'm sorry if i misunderstood...

Siempre es un placer charlar con tu persona.

Cuando digo "Al resto de visitantes no olviden que está foto está relacionada con actividad eléctrica." , me refiero al rayo que se encuentra a la izquierda y debido a su presencia, creo que el tono azul de las nubes es producido por actividad eléctrica al interior de la nube. Pero es claro que puedo estar equivocado.

Dime si recuerdas haber visto rayos a la distancia cuando tomastes esta foto.

Sorry for the delay... Thanks to V.de Lara, Alexander Lesnikov and to Marah! I'm really pleased about your comments.

I'm living here since 1993 and i never saw a similar sky before. Sometimes it's a matter of luck...having the camera ready. I got a little sequence of this photo in order to assemble a short animation showing the storm translating. link and this is an older storm always in the same direction link

Greetings from Italy!
