New Video: CN Tower Triggers Lightning Show

This past summer a large storm passed over Toronto, Canada. Toronto is home to the CN tower which is the largest tower structure in the world, standing over 1800 ft high. As shown in the following video, the CN tower triggers multiple lightning strikes, creating a brilliant light show. The CN tower is struck by lightning multiple times a year but the night captured in this video is exceptionally...

Lightning Sprites Caught on Video

Sprites are highly energetic discharges that occur in the upper atmosphere during lightning strikes. Until about 20 years ago, sprites were only seen by pilots flying at high altitudes. Recently, scientist have been doing significant amounts of research on sprites and captured high speed video of sprites. See the new video...

NPR feature on lightning research

National Public Radio just aired a segmented on lightning phenomenon with guest Joseph Dwyer from the Florida Institute of Technology. Professor Dwyer and his colleagues have recently discovered that lightning produces X-rays which may be somehow involved in the propagation of...

Lightning Creates Waves in Space

NASA researchers have recently measured very low frequency resonances in space that are created by lightning strikes. Evidently, lightning can excite the earth’s atmosphere at frequencies around 8 Hz. These waves bounces around the earth’s and when multiple lightning strikes occur, these multiple waves create peaks and valleys that can be measured in space. A picture of these wave effects is shown below. The full news article can be found here: NASA lightning...
