Get rid of the music and it’s cool.

Thank you for your feedback! :)
It interesting what you wrote, beacuse I really thought music made the video better, but you are not the only one who wrote me the same. I guess I need to do a poll on this....

Did you have any turbulence from the storm? It looks like a smooth flight!!

Thought about you @sophie09 when I spotted this video this morning.

#NOAA42 Kermit recorded St. Elmo's fire (weather phenomenon) during their 15 February winter storm flight for the Ocean Winds research project.

Wikipedia describes St. Elmo's Fire as....
St. Elmo's fire is a bright blue or violet glow, appearing like fire in some circumstances, from tall, sharply pointed structures such as masts, spires, and chimneys, and on aircraft wings or nose cones. St. Elmo's fire can also appear on leaves and grass, and even at the tips of cattle horns.[3] Often accompanying the glow is a distinct hissing or buzzing sound. It is sometimes confused with ball lightning.
