An amateur astronomer in the San Francisco area has turned over to NASA officials a digital camera photograph he took as the Columbia space shuttle passed over California, that appears to show a "purplish electrical bolt" striking the craft. Ken Layne has the details, along with links to news accounts from the San Francisco Chronicle, and other commentary. The actual photo has not yet been made public.
