the mighty Tesla coil.

Our photography meetup group got the rare opportunity to have a private shoot of the electricity theater at the Dallas Museum of Science and Nature.

The Tesla coil puts out 1,000,00 volts and turns electricity into plasma.  It was loud as hell, and very impressive.  Note the different color arcs toward the foreground that are arcing to the stage.  Behind that arc is a fluorescent light bulb leaning against a table.  The ionized air lights the bulb.
