      In Venezuela, just above the mouth of the Catatumbo River, a lightning storm has been raging for at least two centuries. For 160 nights out of the year, the lightning strikes here for 10 straight hours, at a rate of nearly 300 strikes per hour. Cool.

      The mysterious "Relámpago del Catatumbo" (Catatumbo lightning) is a natural phenomenon located at the mouth of the Catatumbo river in Venezuela. Cloud to cloud lighting forms above the area 140-160 nights a year, for up to ten hours a night. Lightning may travel from one cloud to another up to 280 times an HOUR.

      Catatumbo lightnings - a natural phenomenon that occurs in the north-west of Venezuela, where the eponymous river flows into Lake Maracaibo. Above the confluence, regular storm activity is observed: lightning is in the clouds almost 200 days a year, and continuous lightning sessions last about 10 hours.

      The mysterious "Relámpago del Catatumbo" (Catatumbo lightning) is a natural phenomenon located at the mouth of the Catatumbo river in Venezuela. Several different explanations have been proposed for it, including methane produced from local swamps, oil deposits, uranium in the bedrock and local air currents. Photograph by Chris Kotsiopoulos.

Several different explanations have been proposed for the near constant lightning storm from methane produced from local swamps to uranium in the bedrock but no explanation has been universally accepted.
