Lightning strikes the earth more than a hundred times every second. It's bright and dramatic, but it happens so fast that we rarely get a chance to see it. Now celebrated children's science writer Seymour Simon gives you an opportunity to take a closer look at lightning with clear explanations of what causes those bright flashes of light in a stormy sky.
