It was about January or early February of this year and it was dusk. I was on the beach with some friends and about ten miles or so out into the North Sea there were some forts and man made islands. On one of these islands there was a weird kind of mushroom shaped cloud. Lightning was coming up from the ground and into the cloud. Lightning usually lights up a big area but this only lit up the area around the island and the cloud above.
It was dusk everywhere, night kind of color except for the sky above the island that was sunset color, which was why I noticed it.
There were about twelve to fifteen people there, most of them were watching too. Have you had any other reports of lightning going up into the sky from the ground? If so please e-mail me. I`m desperate to find out what it was.
