A lucky shot from over 30 taken with a hand-held DSLR back on June 22nd when there was a large storm between Balsam and Waynesville. We observed about an hour of active cloud-to-cloud lightning. Sometimes referred to as ‘heat lightning’ it has nothing to do with heat but generally used to describe distant lightning strikes with no thunder.
