ELI5: How do lightning tracker websites work?
#1
Sitting on the toilet just now during a thunderstorm and a huge bolt of lightning flashed outside that must have been 2-3 miles away. I was watching the live lightning ( links removed by admin) map on LightningMaps.org and the flash that just saw was on my live map within 10 seconds! How is it possible to track the sky on a global scale like that?

Hi, This is a good place to start.

Read Project Description - (14. February 2016, 11:10), it is for the older Red systems but contains valuable information that is applicable to the new Blue.

Enjoy.
