Real-Time Lightning Detector - Blitzortung!

Posted June 12th, 2014 @ 1:00pm

If you're slightly geeky, as I am, spend your evenings watching Discovery, Smithsonian and Science Channels, as I do, then, you may find this website kinda cool.  Blitzortung (blitz is German for lightning.)  Monitors lightning strikes all over the world.. Click on it and listen to the 'clicks.'  It's kinda mesmerizing!
