Although lightning itself can be a dangerous spectacle, I was able to witness it’s frightening beauty whilst taking a nightly stroll on the AC boardwalk. Being an avid lover of nature, my focus to get back home suddenly disappeared as I stopped to watch the clouds form these beautiful bolts of light in the dark sky. Learned later on that lightning happens when liquid and ice particles above the freezing level collide. They build up large electrical fields in clouds and boom, you have it! ‘Twas a lovely and relaxing thing to experience in person. Two sections in the sky kept lighting up back and forth behind the clouds, almost as if they were quietly talking to each other about whether they would viciously take the city over like the night before. I wasn’t the only one in awe as a few others walking by stopped to enjoy the electrifying performance with me.
