Gigantic jets of lightning that shoot upward toward space can tower 50 miles above the Earth’s surface. Until now, we knew very little about the conditions that set them off or how they form.
Close observations of two gigantic jets in September 2010 enabled researchers to map out the electrical-charge imbalances that spawned this particular type of lightning.
“For the first time, these observations give us details of what lightning channels are doing when they form gigantic jets,” said lightning scientist Steven Cummer of Duke University, co-author of research published May 5 in Geophysical Research Letters.
