Reported here are some direct observations of the development of optical phenomena related to initial electrode processes in a 4000 A spark discharge of approximately 10 to 20 nsec duration in 1 atmosphere air, gap 0.85mm. The development of directed flares originating from the anode spot is photographed by means of a 8 nsec Kerr cell shutter and is tentatively identified as a directed explosive type of erosion, which was predicted.
