When I am looking at the lightning data on the web, what do the green lines mean that flash up when a lightning strike is detected? Am very interested in this area of weather and am thinking about looking into getting a detector and becoming part of the service, if that is available.


The lines connect a stroke to the detecting stations. On the lines may be one of 3 colors, indicating 'distance' of stroke from the station,... short, medium, long.
