Angle to the glass, the first has it also, just closer and the blowout masks it a bit. Lightning doesn't "move" like as suggested. Once an ion path is formed to the struck object, it stays put not matter the wind.

And in this picture I took through glass it is clearly a reflection, below. The idea that a second, somehow much dimmer bolt would EXACTLY mirror the first but be displaced by dozens or hundreds of feet (the bolt below was at least several miles away) is just not tenable...
