I am going to tell you about lightning, how it builds, when it strikes, and different kinds of lightning. Lightning builds when little ice or water particles rub together. This happens in the clouds.
There are many different kinds of lightning. Heat, sheet, ribbon, and ball. Heat lightning is to far away to be heard. Sheet lightning lights up the clouds. Ribbon lightning is not really a ribbon. Ball lightning is a fast or slow moving ball of lightning.
All lightning is 5 times hotter than the surface of the sun. Lightning strikes around the world more than 100 times a second!!Lightning is electricity, it wants to go to conductors. Sometimes it strikes trees and sometimes it hits people! Lightning is dangerous and really amazing.
(These people were struck by lightning!)
