Yes, I do know about the Lightening Field
, and I think it's in the same general area in the southwest. I'd forgotten how many dozen poles are exactly the same spot about the ground. And you have to make reservations to stay there for 24 hours, during which you may or may not see lightening.
The Roden Crater is also an attractive spot for lightening, and where you can see the rare green flash around the sun at sunrise or sunset.
Have you visited the Lightening Field? I thought de Maria's Broken Kilometer to be a bit dull when I saw it, although the Earth Room smelt kinda cool and the height of the dirt made the room seem so low.
