    We are currently getting arcs about 15" to 19" long.

    Try Dave's tesla page for more details about this coil and more GIF's and AVI's.

    The object at the right is a wood rod with a ground wire attached to the end. You can see the corona between the rod and the coil's discharge terminal. Whenever we have a grounded object close to the coil but too far for an arc to form we get a huge amount of corona.

    In this picture you can see a neon lamp that is taped to the end. This coil not only lights up that little neon it also lights up the 8 foot flourescent tubes on the ceiling above the coil! You can see this in the videos'.

    Here is a 1.1Mb AVI.

    This is a smaller (600k) video for those that don't want to wait.
    The lights above the coil are not turned on. The coil does it all by itself!
