    Lightning Show

    For several nights each year, we sit on the balcony and watch a lightning show. I am curious if this lightning is from storms in or near Venezuela, or is it possible we are seeing some of the high level lightning from the Catatumbo Lightning. I know that would be over 150 miles away, but am wondering if that could be what we are watching - at least some of the time. Does anyone happen to know?

    It is the Catatumbo lightning! At the Maracaibo lake where the Catatumbo river is, there is thunder and lightning 140 to 160 days a year. It can continue for 10 hours a day. You can see this from Aruba.

    I sent an email and they said "They are from thunderstorms inland over Venezuela"
