wat electricity? my gramma told me there is always an endless war of good & evil in the cosmos ..& she said wat we call it lightening is the fire balls they throw eachother in the rainy seasons .. & she thinks scientists are the people who lost their minds

it a lamp of God checking on His sheep

It a result of ice water

It a result of ice and it creates lightning

lighting are those part of science which belong to light

electricity, caused by different electricity charges in earth and clouds.

Lightning is atmospheric discharge.it occurs when a charged cloud passes over air that is also charged.just lyk the spark u notice when positive and negative terminals are crossed.its similar to lightning,except 4 lightning huge amounts of charge is involved.

lightning is a loqa's voice electricity!... coz you know guys when i sing,,,,, woooo thunder gurrrrrrrrrrdddddd then lightning!... then pose,,, whoopsss picture picture!

yes, discharge!! i completely forgot that word...

Water and ice move around inside the cloud; forced up by warm air currents, down by gravity, and compressed in the cloud. Just as rubbing a balloon can create static electricity, the particles in the cloud become charged. Charges separate in the cloud. Positive charges move up, and negatives move down.
Once a significant charge separation has built up, the positive and negative charges seek to reach each other an neutralise.‘Streamers’ come up from the ground to form a pathway. Once a pathway is completed a spark forms, neutralizing the charge.
As the negative charge races down, the air surrounding it heats up.The spark is very hot at almost 20,000 degrees Celsius, and it rapidly heats the air to create a shock wave.
Considering light travels very fast– about 300 million metres per second, and that sound only travels at 300 metres per second; light is a million times faster than the sound produced. To find out how far away the storm is, you can count how long you hear the sound after the lightning. For every 4 seconds between the flash and the rumble, the thunderstorm is 1 mile away.

Great thanx for comment

Lightning is a natural phenominon occuring at the cloud no one can tall the real fact about IT but we allways geast it only God who know it. May u guaid to the right answer.
