hey guys just had a thought, if we can 'follow' or map lightning in this detail, could they come up with mathematical models or whatever that could accurately predict 'patterns' or paths that lightning follow ...
When the electric field becomes strong enough, an electrical discharge (the bolt of lightning) occurs within clouds or between clouds and the ground. During the strike, successive portions of air become a conductive discharge channel as the electrons and positive ions of air molecules are pulled away from each other and forced to flow in opposite directions.

Interesting to see lightening traveling upward. I have read that it does that, but this is the first time I really saw it.
