Quick Reference

An extremely rare form of lightning, in which the discharge propagates so slowly that it may be followed by eye. There appears to be only anecdotal evidence, so there is no adequate scientific explanation, and many experts doubt the reality of the phenomenon.

Subjects: Meteorology and Climatology.
