The byproducts are:

- thunder

- ash (trees hit)

- fulgurites (strands of sand glass)

- ozone

- Buckminsterfullerenes : minute quantities of the fullerenes, in the form of C60, C70, C76, C82 and C84 molecules, are produced in nature, hidden in soot and formed by lightning discharges in the atmosphere
