Lightning figures

05/01/2018

It is estimated that 2,000 storms coexist simultaneously on the planet and about 100 lightning bolts discharge on the earth every second. In total, this represents some 4,000 daily storms and 9 million atmospheric discharges every day. Therefore, 1.2 billion lightning strikes occur per year on our planet.

Lightning figures    

The average temperature of a lightning bolt is 27,700 degrees. This means that it is 5 times hotter than the surface temperature of the sun (5,505 degrees).

Lightning bolts can reach more than 144 kilometres in length and have a diameter of almost 18 centimetres.
