IKIMASHO!

Flying through a pink lightning storm over the Himalayas, Nepal.

A few nights back I was on a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Kathmandu in Nepal. Out of the corner of my eye I could see lights flickering, and just assumed it was the wing lights on the aircraft. But then I turned my head and saw a full-scale electrical storm happening right in front of me. It must have been a few miles away as there was no turbulence at all. It was a pretty amazing spectacle. There were some moments of crazy fork lightning, and at times the whole sky was lit up pink and purple. Would you have been scared?
