Ground-based pictures taken by eyewitnesses and images from the Japan geostationary satellite MTSAT-2 are used as a database. The analysis of the ground-based pictures allows the altitude of the main burst to be estimated as 22.9 ± 1.6 km. It is shown that the top of the cloud formed due to the main burst rose to 11 km for about 60–80 s due to convection, which… CONTINUE READING
