Lightning Storms

What causes charge separation in a thunder cloud?  Where do lightning storms get their “endless” energy from? 

 These questions are explained by the Electro Gravity theory. 

The EG theory explains why the earth will draw mostly negatively charged particles towards itself (as seen in cloud charge separation) and push positive charges away – until there is a discharge, a lighting strikes between earth and the clouds.  The EG theory explains why there is a constant incentive for charge separation in thunder clouds.

In fact, now we can attempt to explain the mysterious lightning sprites (upwards lightning) – on the top of clouds – as a result of a lightning strike to the ground, leaving a negative cloud charge trying to balance itself out by reaching the positively charged Earth’s ionosphere – 90 km above the ground. 


Nobody believed this was possible until these sprites were recently photographed.  It seems the old

 “rain and hail” theory of charge separation no longer can apply here – since there is no rain in the ionosphere.

  • I was reading your paper, “Free Fall of Elementary Particles:
    On moving bodies and their electromagnetic forces”, and I noted the sentence in the last paragraph, “Interestingly, the Earth’s atmosphere does measure an electrostatic potential voltage gradient of approximate 100 V/m.” I researched that issue and found the cause is very complicated, and poorly understood. Please note that the 100V/m is approximately the maximum just above ground level, 1m; it decreases with altitude.

    Please read the IEEE Spectrum article about the new [i]twin[/i] Van Allen Belt probes

    Our ionosphere is constantly being [i]fed[/i] charged particles by the Sun. Also, Sprites produce x-ray and gamma ray EM emissions.
