It turns into a rock called fulgurite (fused quartz).
When sand is struck by lightning, the silica in the sand melts and fuses, forming a glass tube called fulgurite. Fulgurite is generally rare, but can be found all over the world. The fulgurite can be a variety of different colors depending on the mineral content of the sand.

If lightning strikes sand, glass is formed.
They get struck by lightning.
Because the lightning strike is so hot it melts the sand and cools and turns into glass
the lightning heats up the sand causing the silica in the sand to melt causing natural glassthese are called "fulgurites". and yes, this is awesome.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fulgurite____________What happens in the above answer occurs when HEAT strikes sand, not lightning (although lightning has extreme heat, this is not the correct answer). Sand is considered "ground" if you are touching sand during a thunderstorm you are grounded.(: Hey!!
The glass ball is for ornamental purposes only. Nothing happens to it when lightning strikes it.
You feel static in your hair.
If your head is underwater, lightning wont strike you. If you poke your head out, it will.
They get burnt and break down.
His kite-in-a-lightning-storm experiment, and most likely after witnessing what happens to buildings that are struck by lightning.
lightning can strike a car tire dont listen to haters who think cars cant get struck by lightning.
No, lightning is not attracted to sand blasting dust.
Yes it does. The sand is formed into a substance called fulgurite by the heat of the lightning. Below is a link to a company that sells several examples. http://www.sciencemall-usa.com/fulgurites2.html
Sand that has been melted by lightning is called fulgurite.
If lightning strikes a bird, you MIGHT find a few feathers around, but that's about all.
it deforms it and makes it look like a cool rock.
Can Be Struck By LightningHopefully, nothing. Swimming in lightning with all the water that's around you is a very, very bad decision. You could be struck by lightning and possibly killed. It's always good to get out of the water before the lightning reaches your area.

It happens all the time but it is very rarely noticed.
He dies by getting struck by lightning. :)P
It would create glass considering the heat of the lightning and that sand turns to glass when hot enough.
