St. Elmo's fire is one of tht many interesting phenomena connected with lightning, and to understand it we must review again what takes place when lightning occurs. All matter is made up of two kinds of particles, positive and negative. The two kinds of particles strongly attract each other, and if they are separated they have a great tendency to reunite. When a strong negative or positive charge is built up in the base of a ciaud, it induces an opposite charge below it on earth. Electrons start moving from the region of the negative-charge to the positive. They gradually build up a channel or channels of charged particles between the earth and the cloud, and wh«n there is a great surge of electrons a lightning flash occurs. Now. suppose instead of allowing the charges to build up until the strain is too great and must be broken, there was some way of enabling the charge from below, on the earth, to "leak off." Instead of a lightning stroke, the charge would leak off in the form of a "brush discharge." Thi», by the way, is exactly the way a lightning rod works. The point of the lightning rod enables the electrons to leak off. St. Elmo's fire is the glow that accompanies such a "brush discharge" of atmospheric electri- ity. It appears as a tip of light n the ends of pointed objects uch as church towers or the masts of ships during stormy weather. We usually hear a crack- ng of filling noise at the same time. Another place St. Elmo's fire Is .ommonly observed is on the edge if propellers, along the wing tips, ·windshield and nose of airplanes when they are flying In dry snow r in the vicinity of thunderstorms This discharge may sometimes be trong enough to cause static in the radio of the airplane. * · * FUN TIME The Chuckle Box Fran: Au revoir.
