Caption: Tracking lightning. A researcher monitors the control room of the National Lightning Detection Network (NLDN). This is a service whereby users across the USA can see where lightning is distributed at any given moment. This may influence a wide variety of events, such as airliner routes or scientific experiments. The NLDN is based at the State University of New York in the USA.
