Caption: Lightning. A lightning bolt strikes the ground at night, seen behind a street light. Lightning occurs when a large electrical charge builds up on a cloud. In cloud-to-ground lightning a leader of electrons first descends to the ground. As soon as it makes contact an enormous return stroke surges up the leader's ionised path, producing a blinding white light and temperatures as high as 30,000 degrees C.
