The most beautiful thing on earth can be the most dangerous too. Lightning, one of the most beautiful displays, can turn out to be the most hazardous natural phenomenon on earth. We all know about the lava erupting from a volcano, but have you heard of volcanic lightning? It’s a frightening sight to see a volcano erupt into a lightning storm. At the same time, these colorful fireworks make our souls dance in joy for its sheer spectacle.
A single flash can make the earth five times hotter than the sun’s surface. That will cause the air to expand and vibrate resulting in thunder which we hear after the lightning flash. When the lightning shoots across the sky, the earth resembles a beautiful girl with golden hair. In the wind, her hair spreads across the dark sky and glows the horizon. This powerful beauty still remains a mystery to science. Here we showcase a collection of outstanding photographs of volcanic lightning.
