Caption: 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.
