On 22 Oc­to­ber, a hor­i­zon­tal light­ning flash passed about 250 miles (400km) across the plains from Ok­la­homa to Mis­souri. The ex­tra­or­di­nary phe­nom­e­non was caught on cam­era by a new satel­lite, GOES-16, equipped with a spe­cial light­ning de­tec­tor. If con­firmed, this flash eas­ily beats the pre­vi­ous world record for a sin­gle hor­i­zon­tal light­ning flash – 199.5 miles ((321km) across Ok­la­homa on 20 June 2007. Times, 11 Nov 2017.
