OK,

here’s my explanation on how I made the THunderStom image posted here recently.

I’d bet there are better ways. I should have tweaked more all settings

Actually i though lightning goes both up and down (obviously not at the same time). I learnt something about charged particles in the attracting opposite charges…or something like that…but thats besides the point. The point is, cool method dude.

Yup,

lightning direction is not so predetermined. Furthermore it depends if you consider the direction as the direction of the CURRENT, of the ELECTRONS (which is the opposite ) or the direction going from where the air insulating properties break off first
