Check out the above view of Earth from the International Space Station at night.  I was surprised to see how much area that a lightning strike covered with its glow.  I couldn’t find any info about which camera was used to capture these images, but it would make sense that it’s a Nikon D3s or other Nikon body since the raw images were sourced from NASA.
