Anything that moves very fast

Nobs, though, was lightning by comparison with the slow thinking beast and dodged his opponent's thrust with ease. Then he raced to the rear of the tremendous thing and seized it by the tail.

To produce lightning

I don't know, Father, but believe me, it has been a horrible night — one that I'll never forget. It thundered and lightninged, and I was very hungry.

The discharge of atmospheric electrical charge itself

That tree was hit by lightning.

The flash of light caused by the discharge of atmospheric electrical charge
Extremely fast or sudden
Moving at the speed of lightning
{n} the flash that precedes thunder
The act of making bright, or the state of being made bright; enlightenment; brightening, as of the mental powers
An atmospheric electrical phenomenon associated with thunderstorms; a surge on a system that results from energy being impressed on the system
{s} of or pertaining to lightning
visible electrical discharge in the atmosphere, as in: Flashes of lightning illuminated the night sky
Electrical discharge at high gas pressure, which occurs between thundercloud and soil The electric current in the lightning channel can reach values of 10,000 A The plasma and the neutral gas inside the channel is strongly heated by the current flow This causes a sudden expansion of the lightning channel which can be heard as thunder It could only recently be proved that lightning discharges occur between cloud and ionosphere
Visible discharge of electricity created by thunderstorms
Most simply defined as the discharge of electricity from one cloud to another, or from a cloud to the ground
Lightening
A discharge of static electricity, generated (usually) by a thunderstorm cloud
abrupt electric discharge from cloud to cloud or from cloud to earth accompanied by the emission of light
A flash of light resulting from an electrical discharge between clouds or between clouds and the ground
A sudden and visible discharge of electricity produced in a thunderstorm, creating a flash of light generated by the flow of electrons between opposite charged parts of a cumulonimbus cloud This can occur within a cloud, between clouds, from the cloud to air, or from the cloud to the ground For examples, see heat lightning and ball lightning
Barbara
a visible electrical discharge produced by a thunderstorm The discharge may occur within or between clouds, between the cloud and air, or between a cloud and the ground
The sound produced by the electricity in passing rapidly through the atmosphere constitutes thunder
the flash of light that accompanies an electric discharge in the atmosphere (or something resembling such a flash); can scintillate for a second or more
{i} flash or streak of light in the sky caused by the discharge of an electric spark in a thundercloud
Usually, any and all of the assorted forms of observable electrical release created by thunderstorms
An electrical discharge from a thunderstorm
a flash of light in the sky produced when electricity passes from one cloud to another or between a cloud and the Earth
if a thunderstorm approaches: get off exposed alpine ridges and summits - get as far down the mountain as you can do not stand under a lone tall tree (or small clump of trees), or at the edge of a taller forest get off any body of water (lakes), do not stand on damp ground (swampy areas, ditches) do not stand in shallow caves, or rock scoops in cliffs do not stay in wooden shelters or tents get into forest of uniform height, or into a vehicle if you are caught in a storm: discard large metal objects sit on your dry pack if it is greater than 4" thick; or squat or kneel on ground cover ears with hands
is a discharge of atmospheric electricity accompanied by a vivid flash of light During thunderstorms, static electricity builds up in clouds A positive charge builds in the upper part of the cloud, while a negative charge builds in the lower portion When thedifference between the charges becomes great, the charge jumps from one area to another, creating a lightning bolt Most lightning bolts strike from one cloud to another but they can also strike the ground Such bolts occur when positive charges build up on the ground A negative charge or "leader" flows from the cloud toward the ground and then a positively charged leader (called the return stroke) runs from the ground to the cloud what appears as a lightning bolt is actually a series of downward and upward strokes, all taking place in less than a second
Any and all of the various forms of visible electrical discharge caused by thunderstorms Severe thunderstorms usually have frequent -- sometimes continuous -- lightning However, some non-severe thunderstorms also contain frequent and vivid electrical displays, while some severe storms are accompanied by little lightning
(Foudre) Most fire insurance policies make the company liable for all losses caused by lightning, even when no fire occurs Most policies, however, carry the electrical apparatus clause, which excludes loss caused by artificially generated electrical currents to electrical equipment
A visible discharge of electricity produced by a thunderstorm
the large electric sparks produced in and around thunderclouds
Lightning is the very bright flashes of light in the sky that happen during thunderstorms. One man died when he was struck by lightning Another flash of lightning lit up the cave. thunder and lightning. see also forked lightning
A discharge of atmospheric electricity, accompanied by a vivid flash of light, commonly from one cloud to another, sometimes from a cloud to the earth
A sudden and visible discharge of electricity produced in response to the build up of electrical potential between cloud and ground, between clouds, within a single cloud, or between a cloud and surrounding air
A rapid, visible discharge of electricity hotter than the surface of the sun Lightning is caused by the build up of electrical potential between cloud and ground, between clouds, or between clouds and the surrounding air
Lightning describes things that happen very quickly or last for only a short time. Driving today demands lightning reflexes. very fast, and often without warning. Visible discharge of electricity when part of the atmosphere acquires enough electrical charge to overcome the resistance of the air. During a thunderstorm, lightning flashes can occur within clouds, between clouds, between clouds and air, or from clouds to the ground. Lightning is usually associated with cumulonimbus clouds (thunderclouds) but also occurs in nimbostratus clouds, in snowstorms and dust storms, and sometimes in the dust and gases emitted by a volcano. A typical lightning flash involves a potential difference between cloud and ground of several hundred million volts. Temperatures in the lightning channel are on the order of 30,000 K (50,000 °F). A cloud-to-ground flash comprises at least two strokes: a pale leader stroke that strikes the ground and a highly luminous return stroke. The leader stroke reaches the ground in about 20 milliseconds; the return stroke reaches the cloud in about 70 microseconds. The thunder associated with lightning is caused by rapid heating of air along the length of the lightning channel. The heated air expands at supersonic speeds. The shock wave decays within a metre or two into a sound wave, which, modified by the intervening air and topography, produces a series of rumbles and claps. See also thunderstorm
A discharge of atmospheric electricity accompanied by a vivid flash of light During thunderstorms, static electricity builds up within the clouds A positive charge builds in the upper part of the cloud, while a large negative charge builds in the lower portion When the difference between the positive and negative charges becomes great, the electrical charge jumps from one area to another, creating a lightning bolt Most lightning bolts strike from one cloud to another, but they also can strike the ground These bolts occur when positive charges build up on the ground A negative charge called the "faintly luminous streamer" or "leader" flows from the cloud toward the ground Then a positively charged leader, called the return stroke, leaves the ground and runs into the cloud What is seen as a lightning bolt is actually a series of downward-striking leaders and upward-striking return strokes, all taking place in less than a second
- an electrical discharge that results from the buildup of positive and negative charges within a thunderstorm When the buildup becomes strong enough, lightning appears as a "bolt " This flash of light usually occurs within or between, the clouds and the ground When a lightning bolt occurs, the air surrounding its channel is instantaneously heated to as much as 50,000° F, a temperature that is five times that of the sun
a flash of light in the sky caused by the discharge of atmospheric electricity from one cloud to another or between a cloud and the earth
Very rarely a hazard in Scotland, you will be relieved to hear An approaching electrical storm is normally accompanied by thunder, heavy rain, extra static in the air Leave high and exposed points before it hits

It ranges from the red end to the violet end of the spectrum, with wavelengths from 700 to 400 nanometres and frequencies from 4.3/n/n10^14 to 7.5/n/n10^14 Hz. Like all electromagnetic radiation, it travels through empty space at a speed of about 186,000 mi/sec (300,000 km/sec). In the mid-19th century, light was described by James Clerk Maxwell in terms of electromagnetic waves, but 20th-century physicists showed that it exhibits properties of particles as well; its carrier particle is the photon. Light is the basis for the sense of sight and for the perception of colour.
