Awesome.  :cool:

I hope that they will pick up the lightning hotbed. It looks like the Congo is the place:

Where Does the Most Lightning Occur?

Several areas on Earth experience an unusual amount of lightning. Six of these areas are listed below along with the reasons for their unusual levels of lightning activity.

    Democratic Republic of the Congo in central Africa has the highest frequency of lightning on Earth. There year-round thunderstorms are caused by local convection and moisture-laden air masses from the Atlantic Ocean encountering mountains as they move across the continent.

    Northwestern South America where warm winds from the Pacific Ocean carry moisture-laden air masses up the Andes Mountains, causing cooling and thunderstorm activity.

    The Himalayan Forelands where seasonal winds carry warm, moist air from the Indian Ocean up the front of the mountain range causing cooling and thunderstorm activity.

    Central Florida between Tampa and Orlando is known as "lightning alley". There warm, rising air pulls in sea breezes from the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico.

    The Pampas of Argentina where moist seasonal winds off the Atlantic Ocean in summer and spring produce violent thunderstorms.

    Indonesia where winds from the Indian Ocean push warm, moist air up the volcanic mountain ranges of Java and Sumatra to produce thunderstorms.

I did not realize that the Himalayan Forelands were also a high strike density. It seems that there are people in India that are high-tech and could go for Blitzortung....  :-k

We are after nothing less than World Domination here...  :twisted:
