You should visit Jupiter.


Jupiter has powerful storms, always accompanied by lightning strikes. The storms are a result of moist convection in the atmosphere connected to the evaporation and condensation of water. They are sites of strong upward motion of the air, which leads to the formation of bright and dense clouds. The storms form mainly in belt regions. The lightning strikes on Jupiter are hundreds times more powerful than those seen on Earth. However, there are so few, that the amount of lightning activity is comparable to earth.
