    This is the free version of Lightning Calculator.
    It includes ad's, and all permissions are related to the ad-module. The paid for version has no ad's.

    This program calculate the distance between you and the lightning by using an easy to use interface.
    It will show the distanse in meter or feet, and a history of the 5 last distances will give you an indication of the movement of the lightning.

    Science of Lightning:
    Lightning is an atmospheric electrostatic discharge (spark) accompanied by thunder, which typically occurs during thunderstorms,and sometimes during volcanic eruptions or dust storms.
    From this discharge of atmospheric electricity, a leader of a bolt of lightning can travel at speeds of 220,000 km/h (140,000 mph), and can reach temperatures approaching 30,000 °C (54,000 °F), hot enough to fuse silica sand into glass channels known as fulgurites which are normally hollow and can extend some distance into the ground.
    There are some 16 million lightning storms in the world every year. Lightning causes ionisation in the air through which it travels, leading to the formation of nitric oxide and ultimately, nitric acid, of benefit to plant life below.
    Lightning can also occur within the ash clouds from volcanic eruptions, or can be caused by violent forest fires which generate sufficient dust to create a static charge.
    How lightning initially forms is still a matter of debate: Scientists have studied root causes ranging from atmospheric perturbations (wind, humidity, friction, and atmospheric pressure) to the impact of solar wind and accumulation of charged solar particles. Ice inside a cloud is thought to be a key element in lightning development, and may cause a forcible separation of positive and negative charges within the cloud, thus assisting in the formation of lightning.
    The irrational fear of lightning (and thunder) is astraphobia. The study or science of lightning is called fulminology, and someone who studies lightning is referred to as a fulminologist.

    With this I no longer need a stopwatch to gauge the distance, now I need a calculator. Seriously, listing only in feet? All that screen space just wasted? Why not show them all? Miles (3 to the right of the decimal point), yards, meters, excetera. You promised to put this on your to-do list July first, we're all still waiting...
