Short summary
Storm activity is sometimes associated with the generation of ionizing radiation. Our motivation for performing this research was to understand its origin. Using measuring cars fitted with new instruments, it was found that the duration of lightning is longer than generally thought. In most cases, lightning occurs only inside the cloud; however, rarely, it is also visible outside the cloud. In such cases, the course of emission over time can be used to assume what it looks like inside the cloud.
