This session started off as a lot of large and reasonably individual cells but as they
merged, they morphed into a 800 kilometre long storm line that stretched across the eastern side of
the state of NSW ( New South Wales).

Intense CG ( Cloud to Ground) lightning as it approached from the west .... photos taken from home
Photo 1 is looking to a storm line over nthrn Sydney ~ Hornsby region and moving roughly SE, in our general direction.
It merged with the bigger cell coming in from the west .... photos show it as it approached ( shown on the rest of the images) ......

The day was rounded off with a gathering of storm chasers at my place for food and drinks


cheers

a couple of radar and lightning shots

This first image shows the central eastern NSW area ... my location is the blue dot roughly centre of the screen
