YOUTUBE LINK: OKC Tower Lightning

A couple times a week, I sift through YouTube looking for new and interesting lightning videos. I found the clip above, shot by a storm observer in Oklahoma City on April 26. At the 48 second mark, an upward lightning flash is visible in the distance - it is the same discharge as one I captured a still image of at the same time:

The view in the clip above appears to be on the north side of the OKC tower farm looking southward - I was on the south end, on the opposite side of the lightning, looking to the northeast. Mirroring one the images reveals the matching channels.
