Just when you thought lightning thunderstorms couldn’t get crazier, we now have invisible radioactive lightning! Anthony has all the details on this so-called “Dark Lightning,” and the potentially harmful implication it poses for airline passengers.

“Thunderstorms contain ‘dark lightning,’ invisible pulses of powerful radiation”
