Caption: Lightning. Artwork depicting the various types of lightning which may be observed. At lower left is a discharge from a negatively-charged cloud to a positively-charged area (village). At centre is a large bolt of lightning discharging a positively- charged cloud to a negatively-charged feature (tree). Just above centre, the discharge is between areas within the same cloud. This is normally seen as 'sheet' lightning. In this instance, the intra-cloud lightning is seen passing through an aircraft. The type of lightning observed depends on the dynamics of the storm system and the conditions on the ground.
