Great video. Bert gave his incredible knowledge on spark formation and
propagation which is always a pleasure to read (we love when he gets
talking about sparks). What I found very impressive in your photo's were
how the sparks moved after the channel was carrying current. The channel
moved "up" as would be expected with the heat the current channel was
dissipating. That was probably the best video of that aspect of TC
sparks I've seen.
