“Lightning strikes reach the ground on Earth as much as 8 million times per day or 100 times per second, according to the National Severe Storms Laboratory.”

“Each lightning flash is about 3 miles long but only about a centimetre wide. It discharges about 1-10 billion joules of energy and produces a current of some 30,000 – 50,000 amps, which heats the surrounding air to over 20,000 degrees Celsius, three times hotter than the surface of the sun (6000 degrees Celsius). In fact a single lightning bolt unleashes as much energy as blowing up a ton of TNT.”
