High Voltage Sparks Over and Through Red LED 3/3

Sparks from the secondary coil on a flyback transformer (taken from a computer monitor) passing around and through a water-clear red LED. The flyback transformer's primary is being driven by a microcontroller.

Here is my webpage describing the flyback transformer driver used to create these sparks: www.semifluid.com/?p=34 The photo has not been manipulated in any way other than cropping.
