Our science teacher set us some homework to find out about lightning. I was in a long discussion with dad about it and I have simplified the true meaning of lightning here for, well, dummies.

Lightning comes from the ground as a difference in charge between the earth and sky. It hits lightning in the sky and they fall down as a lightning bolt.
