An amateur photographer captured a startling image of a “purple bolt” that appeared to strike Columbia. The Seattle Post-Intelligencer and the San Francisco Chronicle are both reporting on the story. The same reporter, Sabin Russell, has a by-line on both articles. Russell was evidently present when former astronaut Tammy Jernigan viewed the photos and collected them and all related photographic equipment.
The photographer, who wishes to remain anonymous, refuses to publish the photos until NASA has a chance to investigate further.
