    Thunder is simply the sound the lightning makes.  You can hear it later than you can see the lightning because sound travels much slower than light.

    When lightning strikes, the air around the lightning bolt is heated (up to 60,000 degrees Fahrenheit), causing it to expand rapidly.  This expansion causes a shockwave, which manifests itself as thunder.
