Sheet lightning

Tonight over the lake behind our house... I was surffing on the web with my laptop in our living room, it's the room on the lake's side of our house. It was almost dark outside and I was wondering why I occasionally saw like flashes: I was focused on my laptop but that sidelong thing bothered me. So I started to watch out of window and yeah, it was what I was thinking about.

Sheet lightning, no noise or blazing flashes. Just a quiet, flickering cloud. I've never seen that before so I went to a wharf built at our shore and managed to take a pic (just when it lightened) and a video clip.

"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

I was driving down to florida once and there was sheet lightning like every few seconds on the horizon in front of me. It was crazy. I didn't know what it was called though until today. Yay for learning.

Help me horse forum! You're my only hope!
