Re: What happens when lightening hits sea water?
Underwater volcanic action causing a pressure wave has been thought to be the cause of very fast moving bands of light in open ocean. don't have trouble with a rapid boiling pit of water at the strike point causing a pressure wave of bioluminescence . The light from a single point underwater could be limited by the angle of refection on the underside of water resulting in the sharply defined circle..???other factors may be needed to explain it's circularity.from the point of view.
