Volcanic Lightning

As sparks flew during the eruption of Mount St. Augustine in Alaska, scientists made some new discoveries

When Mount St. Augustine in Alaska erupted in mid-January 2006 for the first time in 20 years, researchers at the Alaska Volcano Observatory knew they had a rare opportunity on their hands. The eruption had created lightning, a natural phenomena that, for logistical reasons, has remained poorly understood by scientists for decades. "You have to be in the right place at the right time with the right equipment," says atmospheric physicist Ronald Thomas of New Mexico Tech.
