The longest single flash of lightning has been captured by satellites of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, recorded and announced by the U.N.’s World Meteorological Organization on Tuesday.
The “megaflash” stretched 768 kilometres (give or take 8 kilometres) or 477.2 miles (give or take 5 miles) across parts of the southern U.S. including Texas, Louisiana, and Mississippi on April 29, 2020…
The flash in question measures as long as the distance between New York City and Columbus Ohio. Or if you want another, between London and Hamburg.
We’re number one, we’re number one! Or something like that.
