When you count seconds between when you hear thunder and when you see lightning strike what does it tell you?
When lightning occurs and creates thunder you see the lightning immediately because light travels so fast (abot 186,000 miles per second). But sound travels much slower so you don't hear the thunder until several seconds after it occurs. I believe the approximate rule that is used is sound travels about 1 mile in 5 seconds. So if it is 15 seconds before you hear the thunder then the storm is about 3 miles away.
this is because you hear the thunder after it actually makes the sound ( because sound travells ) . lightenging and thunder happen at exactly the same time... so if u see lightenging, try counting how many seconds until u hear the thunder. if it is 5 seconds the storm is 5 miles away into the sky, 6 seconds would be 6 miles 7secs 7 miles and so on. hope this helped :) xx
