And now, sharp and scary, like a shot, the thunder. "

Interest and statements of participants in our project.
Look, what an interesting story we shared turned out!

Such is the poetic image of the first May thunderstorms formed. But there is that participants and explanation:
"Judging by the length of about 30 minutes and the volume of 10-20 km can say that it is a single-cell cloud" has become a source of our inspiration.

To determine the approximate distance to the epicenter of the storm, can be made quite simple calculations. It is known that light travels at about 300,000 kilometers per second, which is almost immediately you will see a flash of lightning. But sound propagates in air at about 330 meters per second. Therefore, immediately after the lightning flash or need to measure the time of thunder, or just moderately reckon. Multiplying the number of seconds for 330, you'll know about the distance to the epicenter of the storm.
