What is heat lightning?



  1. 0 Votes

    Heat lightning is lightning that is not accompanied by thunder or rain. This is because it is usually seen far on the horizon, thus the rain does not fall on the observer and the thunderclap has dissipated before the observer hears it.

    It is called heat lightning because it is most often seen during summer, when sudden thunderstorms are common, and because there is no rain to cool down those who see it.
