- Lightning is a powerful burst of electricity that happens very quickly during a thunderstorm.
- Lightning is caused by an electrical charge in the atmosphere that is unbalanced.
The movement of rain and ice inside a thundercloud creates an electrical charge, with the negative charge (electrons) forming at the bottom of the cloud and the positive charge (protons) forming at the top.
Lightning can occur inside clouds, between clouds and from clouds to the ground.
Thousands of people are struck by lightning every year.
Most lightning occurs over land rather than oceans, with around 70% of it occurring in the Tropics.
There are bolts of lightning striking somewhere on Earth every second.
Lightning strikes usually last around 1 or 2 microseconds.
The average temperature of lightning is around 20000 °C (36000 °F).
- Astraphobia is the fear of thunder and lightning.
