Re: Streamer colour

Hi Finn,
I saw this earlier but waited to confirm the "in person" and not on film observations of color.
Based on streamers being to the air and arcs being to ground or another hard near ground target, your
colors are confirmed. Tonight I asked Robert Golka, very pointedly in the terms of to air and to ground,
about the colors. The pink/blue, being the N21P and N21N band head spectra indeed are for streamers.
The very hot ground strikes, very bright and hot, are the strikes.
A picture is here of that Wendover ~100 KW coil. As you may know, he watched and worked it for years.

In my book, streamers terminate in the air, arcs terminate in a ground connection.

I have never seen a streamer that was not purple/pink.
Only the whimsiest feeble arsc were anything other than white/blue.
(And the arcs from Steve Connors OLTC were the fiercest ones of them all, progressively whiter, thicker and more luminant towards the ground rod)
Am I missing something? Has anyone ever seen a white hot streamer, and I mean _seen_ as opposed to seen a picture of.

Cheers, Finn Hammer
