We study the propagation of streamer discharges through air and along an epoxy rod with an ICCD camera. We use stroboscopic imaging at frequencies up to 110 MHz to visualize discharge evolution and to calculate velocities. Initial results show that surface streamers along a dielectric surface can be up to twice as fast as streamers through bulk air.
