Sparks viewed endwise

Sparks viewed endwise, possibly from a Van de Graaff generator.  They are leaping some 20 feet from one terminal to the other and striking the rim of the two-porthole, back of which the camera is located.  Note how the sparks appear to fatten as they approach.  This was probably taken at Massachusetts Institute of Technology., Credit Line: AIP Emilio Segrè Visual Archives
