Watch the show! While the movement of air can produce amazing cloud formations, nothing can compare to the spectacle of electricity unleashed as lightning. Within tumultuous storm clouds, large areas of positive or negative charge can develop as ice crystals, hailstones, and water droplets fall at various speeds, exchanging charge when they collide. When the electric potential becomes large enough, a lightning flash may emerge, often within the cloud or into the air and occasionally down to earth as seen in this inspiring image from Wyoming. Inspired The Lightning poster was inspired by B_Down13's great photo on Instagram.
