      When I was a kid I was always frightened of thunder and lightning and now that I am older I still have a slight fear but nothing as bad as what I used to have.

      I have always been curious about lightning itself and I saw this video shared on a Facebook group I am part of which I found really interesting. It shows images of lightning in slow motion.

      amazing indeed, so if I understood right it meets with something on the ground and that something pulls out the power from the clouds making the bright flash?

      I am unsure myself as I have never really understood the whole how it works. I do know that is a cloud to ground strike and it is pretty amazing however I am still baffled as to how it works or happens.
