“If I accept the sunshine and warmth, then I must also accept the thunder and lightning” Khalil Gibran

Lightning is an electric current

Lightning flashes travel at a speed of light (670,000,000 mph), while actual lightning strike travels at a speed of 2,70,000 mph

  • A single bolt of lightning⚡ is 5 times higher than the surface of the Sun
  • The study of lightning has a name and known as Fulminology while fear of lightning is Astraphobia.
  • Thunder and lightning are not separate. They are just two features of the same phenomenon
  • Venezuela experiences the most number of lightings on earth

Life and Lightning

“Life is a flash of lightning in the dark of night. It is a brief time of tremendous potential” B Alan Wallace

    I know lighting is really scary because it’s followed by thunder.
    I can understand.
