Dark Lightning Flings Antimatter Into Space

Researchers studying thunderstorms have made a surprising discovery: the lightning we see with our eyes has a dark competitor that discharges storm clouds and flings antimatter into space. Astrophysicists and meteorologists are scrambling to understand "dark lightning."

Bursts of antimatter create gamma rays which are detected by NASA's FERMI space telescope

I'm looking forward to more research into this phenomenon. I wonder if it's related to Sprites, Elves, and blue jets.
