Drawing with Lightning

Use your computer mouse (or finger on touch screens) to "draw" with the lightning bolts below. Create new points or drag existing ones and make dynamic lightning art! There are a lot of different visual effects you can create with this lightning app, you just need to play around and try different things and see what you can come up with. It's a little easier on a computer with a mouse or trackpad to drag elements, but one can play on all devices. Scroll down for some artistic photos of real lightning as seen by Artsology over the Atlantic Ocean a few years ago.

A few years ago, during a summer vacation at the beach in Virginia, we witnessed the following lightning bolts making "art" in the sky over the Atlantic Ocean. These are straight photos of something happening in nature, but they seem so dramatic that it feels like art to us!
