Lightning is an electrical discharge that got its name thanks to the impressive light effect that occurs when it appears. Lightning occurs when the air between two clouds or between a cloud and the ground is charged with an electrostatic charge of too much force.

Under the influence of electric fields, charges begin to move so fast that in the blink of an eye, an electrical discharge runs through the air between the positive and negative clouds or between the cloud and the ground, creating a dazzling light effect that we call lightning or a lightning strike!
