Lightning Researchers Descend On Venezuela

Research into lightning is something that scientists like Dr. Danilo Diaz have been doing in Venezuela recently because of the amazing lightning that happens over Lake Maracaibo. The lightning is so intense that it happens over 300 days a year, and there can be hundreds of strikes in an hour. It happens so much that people are coming there to see it, and a new video has been posted by the Telegraph about the lightning research. The lightning even ended up in the Guinness Book of world Records because of how often it happens. The people researching there think that it has to do with the fact that the wind and the mountains in the area cause lightning to happen more often. That helps guide the research that happens in the area.
They can use this information to figure out better safety measures to protect against weather, and it can be used in other parts of the world where lightning and other kinds of weather events are just as bad. The best thing that can be done there is to keep sending people, and the government has allowed people to come in to have a look at the weather as often as they like. My Space and Weather research will change the lives of people around the world, and it still offers for a great viewing when people want to see lightning that is truly a show in the skies every night.
