Lightning = Dangerous (by allisonrcook)

LIGHTNING = DANGEROUS

1. Lightning is created when negative charges repel opther negative charges to the cloud base.

2. And since like charges repel each other, some of the negative charges on earth are shoved even further into the ground than before the cloud.

3. Well, all that is left at the surface of the ground are positive charges. So, since opposite charges attract, the charges are pulled towards each other.

5. Since it is the fast moving charges that create the light, the light moves up instead of down. And the video to the right is the process of how lightning is formed.

4. Since negative electrons are smaller than positive ones, they move faster and cover more distance. As soon as both charges meet, there is a visible path that leads down to Earth. This is lightning.
