We have the ability to detect lightning in a variety of ways. The use of radio waves is one of the coolest. Yep, I said radio waves but more on that in a moment. My colleague Dr. Thomas Mote made me aware of LightningMaps.org last week, and I have been taking a peek at it pretty consistently since then. It is really cool. I wrote this article to make you aware of it, but I love to use my Forbes articles to teach.
