It was all new to him, raw and horrible--it had fallen upon him like a lightning stroke
His important poems were mostly published at this time, in 1650 and 1655, in the collection which he named 'Silex Scintillans' (The Flaming Flint), a title explained by the frontispiece, which represents a flinty heart glowing under the lightning stroke

, he erased such a mark.
And very recently on the 26th August 2016, 323 reindeers were reported killed by a single lightning stroke
Electro-geometric model (EGM) is a conventional method for computation the lightning stroke
to electric feeding system, but in this paper combined leader progression model (LPM) analysis and charge simulation model is used for lightning stroke
calculation and compared with EGM.
The aircraft-lightning electrodynamics must take into account the following two facts: (a) the aircraft is an electric conductor carrying the lightning stroke
wave [4-7], and (b) the lightning channel is an electric plasma phenomenon [8-12].
Last night a lightning stroke

Second, it is the slow component of the lightning stroke
which ignites flammable vapors.
The BISK station pressure sensor performs poorly--the bias (almost 50 hPa) might be the result of a lightning stroke
(Frantisek Mantlik personal communication, Figure 3 d).
The average peak power per lightning stroke
Finally in 1999 the project got started, and in a lightning stroke
of only twenty-nine days, guess what--they moved the lighthouse
