History - Determines either the past 30 minutes, or the past 60 minutes of lightning activity that is to be replayed.
"Full" - displays all lightning activity within a 375 mile range of Rochester, N.Y.
"Zoom" - displays all lightning activity within a 180 mile range of Rochester, N.Y.
"Run" - starts the replay of all lightning strikes that occurred within the timeframe selected by the "History" setting.
"Stop" - stops the replay, and returns the display to the current time.
NOTE: If there has been no activity within the timeframe selected under "History", the "Run" button will not work.
