The antiparticles being created by the lightning are positrons (anti-electrons) Me can already produce those, such as in a PET scan used by
healthcare to look inside our bodies.
PET stands for Positron Emission Tomography, which images the insides of our bodies by capturing the annihilation of some electrons already in out
body that come in contact with the antimatter (the positrons) -- antimatter positrons that were earlier swallowed by the patient in an antimatter
