This was a early morning Thunderstorm that was located just south of Perth in Western Australia on March 23 2014, we had a good night of thunderstorms that started around 8pm the night before which I also photographed, after watching the radar for a while I saw another storm start developing to the South of the City around 1am, this storm was very slow moving and at 3am it was still where it was 2 hours before, I could still see the lighting from my house so went out to take a look, I also saw a Halo around the moon! (We also had a Moon halo 2 night before) I decided to go back out to take more photos of this second storm and when I got to location with a clear view I noticed I could see the tops of the storm being illuminated by the lighting! I set up my camera and shooting a few time Lapse sequences, this one was taken over 30 minutes, you can see the star trails in the sky above the storm! I also saw a nice ‘comet tail meteor’ while looking up at Jupiter, unfortunately It was just outside my framing so I didn’t get a photo of it. This was the first Thunderstorm we’ve had in Perth since December, and the town of Mandurah south of Perth finally broke their drought of 109 days without rain!
