Above/Left: Lightning off to the southeast as the "cold" front pushed through on Friday, 9/14/2007.  There were some spectacular flashes.  I wish I would have paid attention to them sooner but I was focused on getting ready for imaging.  See below for a wider view with a bit of lightning.

Lightning and star trails

The lightning off the the southeast didn't cause much of an issue with my astrophotography, and things quieted down a couple hours after dark on Friday night.
