Dramatic Volcanic Lightning

This evening the Sakurajima volcano in  Japan had an average sized eruption. But nothing was average about what locals saw thereafter! Lightning could be seen coming from the lava and from behind the dark smoke.  A study in the journal Science indicated that electrical charges are generated when rock fragments, ash, and ice particles in a volcanic plume collide and produce static charges. These static charges create a lightning bolt.  A lightning bolt is nature’s way of balancing the distance between negatively charged and positively charged objects. Lightning is the electrical flow that results when this charge separation becomes too great for air to resist the flow of electricity.

Owner of High Touch High Tech of Charlotte, “Rocket Ryan”, recently visited the North Mecklenburg Senior Center in Huntersville, NC to do hands-on, FUN science with some of the center’s seniors. 

“Rocket Ryan” Paskow  is used to holding the classes for younger groups, including elementary school and birthday parties. But the interactive activities are tailored to all ages and are things that can be recreated at home, plus the lessons intertwine fun, jokes and educational tips.

“Science is ageless, and there is always something to learn and discover,” Paskow said. “Information changes every day.”
