- Cloud-to-cloud Lightning
A lightning discharge that occurs between areas of the same cloud (intra cloud) or from one cloud to another cloud (inter cloud). Cloud-to-cloud flashes are much more common than cloud to ground flashes (on average there are three to five cloud-to-cloud flashes, for every one cloud-to-ground flash).
