In-Person Presentation | Flashes of Brilliance 12 PM

December 6 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Arizona is the lightning photography capital of the United States. Ronald L. Holle, one of the authors of the recently published book Flashes of Brilliance: The Science and Wonder of Arizona Lightning, will review the impacts of one of nature’s most powerful weather phenomena. We will also review the invention of real-time ground-based lightning detection, developed at the University of Arizona, a technology now applied worldwide.

Books will be available for purchase and signing.

This event is free, requires a reservation, and will occur inside. Face coverings are optional.
