Sound of Blue Lightning
Bolts From the Blue
One of the most dangerous types of cloud-to-ground lightning are bolts from the blue. A "Bolt from the Blue" is a cloud-to-ground lighting flash that typically:
�Comes out of the back side of the thunderstorm cloud
�Travels a relatively large distance in clear air away from the storm cloud
�Then angles down and strikes the ground.
These lightning flashes have been documented to travel more than 25 miles away from the thunderstorm cloud. Bolt from the Blue lightning flashes are a particularly dangerous type of lightning flash, as they appear to come out of clear sky. This type of lightning is why it is dangerous to be outside when thunderstorms are in the region, even when skies are still clear. Lightning can, and does, strike many miles away from the thunderstorm cloud itself. It is a good idea to wait 30 minutes or more after the rain ends before resuming outdoor activities.
