Schumann resonances and anti-matter

The Schumann resonances (SR) are a set of spectrum peaks in the extremely low frequency (ELF) portion of the Earth's electromagnetic field spectrum. Schumann resonances are global electromagnetic resonances, excited by lightning discharges in the cavity formed by the Earth's surface and the ionosphere.

The fundamental frequency is about 7.8 Hz, but there are other approx. harmonics.

More recently, discrete Schumann resonance excitations have been linked to transient luminous events – sprites, elves, jets, and other upper-atmospheric lightning.

NASA has also recently reported some surprising findings about thunderstorms, using observations from "Fermi", a satellite designed for gamma ray astronomy.  This anti-matter seems to be linked to 'Terrestrial Gamma-ray Flashes" which are known to be associated with lightning.

Read all about it at NASA's site.

Yes - that was the link I referred to a few minutes ago.
