Lightning Master Technology

A Lightning Strike begins with the formation of stepped-leaders extending downward from the storm cloud in jumps of approximately 150′. When the stepped leaders reach to within about 500′ of the surface of the earth, their electrical attraction pulls streamers of ground charge off various structures and objects on the surface.Whichever streamer reaches a stepped-leader first completes the lightning strike to the structure or object from which it originated.
