Multiple lightning strikes with storm clouds

Lightning. Multiple lightning bolts striking the ground. from a storm cloud at night. Lightning occurs when a large electrical charge builds up on a cloud. At first a leader of electrons descends to the ground. As soon as this makes contact an enormous return stroke surges up the leader's ionised path, producing blinding white light and temperatures as high as 30, 000 degrees Celsius.

1778 Benjamin Franklin scientist Featured Print

1778 Benjamin Franklin scientist

Benjamin Franklin, scientist, inventor, and US Founding Father (January 17 1706 - April 17 1790). Steel engraving by J. Thompson 1834 with later colouring, after 1778 painting by Duplessis. Dubbed "the First American" he may thus also be considered the first American scientist. His studies of electricity earned him the Royal Society Copeley Medal in 1753 and in 1756 he was elected Fellow of the Royal Society. After an honorary doctorate from Oxford in 1762 he became "Doctor Franklin". He helped demonstrate the unity of electrical phenomenon, and the existence of positive and negative charge. His celebrated kite flying in storms was designed to show that lightning was electrical. Being struck would be lethal, so he only suggested collecting charge to show that it performed in the same way as laboratory electrical charge. Among his many inventions is the first lightning rod and bifocals

Lightning over Tucson, USA

Lightning. Night-time view of multiple bolts of lightning striking the ground in a city with the moon in the sky. Lightning occurs when a large electrical charge builds up in a cloud. This is probably due to the rapid movement of water droplets and ice particles within the cloud. Large thunderclouds generally have very turbulent interiors. The charge induces an opposite charge on the ground, and a few "leader electrons" travel to the ground. When one makes contact, there is a huge backflow of energy up the path of the electron. This produces a bright flash of light and temperatures of up to 30, 000 degrees celsius. Photographed in Tucson, Arizona, USA
