It is rising about an hour and a half or so before sunrise. This was taken in Sedona, AZ.

November 12th 2011 Lawrence, NE NSW. We bore witness to an absolutely incredible barrage of Stacatto bolts that followed us from Grafton to this spot overlooking the might Clarence River. I had my back turned to the river when the sky went white and the air was ripped to shreds by these twins. Imagine my elation when I reviewed the LCD to see this! We estimated these bolts were around 400m away, and if you look closely you can make out a couple of upward leaders. Unsurprisingly we packed our gear in the car and got the hell outta there!
