Lightning is a natural discharge of static electricity. It is partly run by 2 parts of the water cycle, condensation and evaporation. The charges are caused by frozen rain drops bumping together. When the electric charges fill the cloud the positive charges called protons form at the top of the cloud and the negative charges called electrons form at the bottom of the cloud. The grounds electric charges concentrates on anything that is sticking up (people mountains trees etc.) lightning is also caused by an electron bumping into a proton. And the streak of light you see in the sky is caused by the ground charge connecting charge in the sky.
