About this title

Synopsis:

Millions of bolts of lightning strike the earth every day. Each blazes a path up to five times hotter than the surface of the sun, yet the flash can be over in as little as a millionth of a second. Sizzling photographs highlight this striking introduction to one of the most powerful and mysterious forces of nature.

From the Publisher:

Every second of every day, more than a hundred lightning bolts strike the earth -- millions of lightning bolts in a single day. . . each one pulsing with as much power as there is in all the electrical generating plants in the United States. Seymour Simon explores this exciting phenomenon with the clear, concise text readers have come to expect from this award-winning author.

From Ben Franklin's famous kite experiment in 1752 to three new types of lightning discovered high above the clouds in 1995, readers will discover what we know -- and what we still have to learn -- about this mysterious power in the sky. Ages 5 up.
