I believe was seeing the E-Field shaped in blue corona as a result of
the nitrogen when the energy was high enough in the sshot mode in the non
break out mode - smoothe torus surface - such that eye sensivity is maximized
in total darkness. Study of the corona/field reveals where spark channels
likely to form more dense events (a whispy air discharge or as a ground plane
approaches a bright power discharge). In the absense of a close plane
influence to the top, the ability to physical view of the nature/shape of the
E-Field, most prominent at the top but also encomapassing the upper
secondary is informative as to pri/sec position, tuning, coupling, Ctop shape
and position, etc.
Looking forward to more "visions" and relevance to field study & influence.
When I used to run my 6" coil in the basement (which was quite dark), as I
cranked up the variac and just before breakout, I would see a beautiful blue
intense field that was in the exact shape of a Christmas tree. Starting at
the primary and extending clear to the top of the secondary.
