Caption: Lightning striking the Empire State Building. From A Triumph of Thunderstorm Photography , New York, Summer 1934. Lightning is a flash of light in the sky caused by an electrical discharge between clouds or between a cloud and the Earth's surface. The flash heats the air and usually causes thunder. Lightning may appear as a jagged streak, as a bright sheet, or in rare cases, as a glowing red ball.
