The sudden appearance of light and energy in the Sky. Lightning arises from a large electrical discharge between clouds, or between a cloud and the Earth. Lightning is produced during a storm.

The positively charged particles gather at the top of the cloud and the negatively charged particles at the base. When the build up of electrical charge is sufficient, a discharge occurs in the form of lightning.
