Lightening Strikes Create Fractals

These images show the effects of the current of a lightening strike.  When a human is struck there appears a Lichtenburg pattern which is a fractal resulting from electric discharge.  It will show up on the surface of insulating materials such as our skin.  The figure with a rod of the Lichtenburg pattern was created by exposing the lucite cylinder to an electron beam.  This pattern is exactly what happens with the lightening strike on our skin.  Some scientists even believe that this pattern continues to smaller and smaller levels all the way to the molecular level which we cannot see.
