Successive 1,500,000-Volt Arcs over a 14-ft. Gap. The brush discharge before the spark took place shows particularly strong on the left terminal.
Two Successive 1,500,000-Volt Arcs Between Points Spaced 14 Ft. Apart. The left terminal is a million volts “above” ground; the right terminal is 500,000 volts “below” ground. Both terminals show brush discharge and two heavy spark discharges and about a dozen successive alternations of arc where the air currents have moved the arc in a direction parallel to the photographic plate.
