What temperature does lightning heat the surrounding air

The temperature of lightning can be around 54,000 degrees Fahrenheit; that's about five times hotter than the surface of the Sun. The heat causes surrounding air to rapidly expand and vibrate, which creates the sound of thunder.

Is air gravity

No, air is not gravity. Gravity is gravity, and air is air. You can have air without gravity, and you can have gravity without air. On Earth's surface we have both air and gravity.

When lighting appears in the remote distance and appears to produce no thunder sound it is called

When lightning appears in the remote distance and appears to produce no thunder sound, it is popularly known as "heat lightning."

Meteorologists will tell you that there really is no such thing as a distinct type of lightning that is not followed by thunder.

All lightning produces thunder, but it is only audible for a distance of some 15-20 miles from the storm. At night, lightning can be seen for distances of up to 125 miles if the conditions are right. So when lightning is seen but no thunder is heard, you are simply too far away from the storm.
