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 and the Smithsonian Institution give you an opportunity to take a closer look at lightning. Newly updated, and boasting vivid photographs and Simons classic writing, this brand-new edition of a science favorite provides clear explanations of what causes those bright flashes of light in a stormy sky.
