Flash Facts: Lightning Discharges

"Although a stroke of lightning appears to be a single continuous discharge, it is actually a series of about 20 discharges, each following the other in rapid succession, spaced up to about one-half second apart."

Illustration: "Artificial lightning produced in the General Electric plant by a discharge of about two million volts."

Issue: The Flash #113 (June-July 1960)
