Lightning is a massive electrostatic discharge caused by unbalanced electric charge in the atmosphere. Lightning can be either inside clouds, cloud to cloud or cloud to ground and is accompanied by the loud sound of thunder. A typical cloud to ground lightning strike is often over 5-6 km long but may be many kilometers longer. A typical thunderstorm may have three or more strikes per minute at its peak.
