Phenomenal thunder from a huge cloud to cloud lightning recorded by MP3 player and cropped from file 'Vihar1aug20.MP3'.
Nice rolling boom. Sounds like thunder from a C-C anvil crawler.
looks like a CG bolt, but it may be a powerfull CC.
CG bolts regularly reach 20/30.000 grad/celsius. CC bolts mostly do not have loud or sonic boom thunders, CG bolts have.
Yes this is a very special kind of lightning bolts. The bolt was intracloud and at least 6 kilometers away above me. It travelled through two or three towns. These kind of lightning bolts the longest on the Earth. A normal lightning bolt is only 10000 degress hot. These phenomenal monsters can reach the length of 140 kilometers and heats up the air more then 30 thousand degress Celsius which is five times hotter then Sun's surface! But they only can be occured only two or three times in the life of a thunderstorm. I had the chance to take a photo of it, please see the description!
