why does lightning flash
Such phenomena are seen almost everywhere on earth. That is why it is important to know why this happens. Let us tell you that during the rainy days, clouds are often seen moving in the sky. When these clouds collide with the clouds coming from the opposite direction, the water droplets present in them get charged, and energy is generated directly towards the earth. Because of this, many times, we hear the loud sound of lightning.
