It wasn't ordinary lightning but a beam of light creating sprites and jets – a gigantic jet issuing forth form a thunderstorm below. He video recorded what he saw – to see it go to https://spaceweather.com/images2019/25oct19/gi_video.mov (or click link on first link) .. or simply go to http://spaceweather.com and key down to October 28th for the story and pics.
