This is some slow motion video of my Jacob's Ladder powered by a 4kv 450mA transformer with power factor correction capacitors. The bright pulsing core of the arc is where the electricity is actually flowing. Around that is a layer of very hot air, the colour of this hot gas is dictated mostly by the material that the electrode is made of.
