Blitzortung Project

blitzortung_map_europe

Welcome to the latest addition of my weathersite!



MyLightningDetector

This project started with a 1-wire solution and a 9V battery that just flashed when a lightning stroke was nearby, this was 2001, then in 2007 i discovered Blitzortung which then was in the early stages.

I then got very ill and my immune system was badly compromised for a few years. I picked up the project in 2012 with a system green which due to a relapse of my condition got back on the shelf for a few years.

In 2016 i picked up where i left with my system Green but change of work and ilness kept holding me from finishing the project! But then i got a present from my wife: a System Blue!!

For several reasons and due to my retirement i kickstarted it back early 2018 and now the project is finally on the rails!

I am still trying to get my system green to work on a Raspberry PI and if that succeeds i will have two stations reporting!

In the mean time my System green is working on a Windows-PC next stop: Raspberry PI 3, a few ferrite antenna's or a loop, because i still have the special machinetooled parts for that.



Short Explanation

The map showing on the default viewing is showing all the DETECTIONS the station did receive, this means a signal was received! This does NOT mean it detected a cloud-to-ground discharge.

The maps theirselves are selfexplanatory, you can zoom in and out and you can even pick out a station nearby you!

For more extensive data and viewings go to:

  • My Blitzortung, all data from station Antwerp and many more!
  • Click on every dot in the map to see the data of that station:

  • Just change the date at the end of the URL! Like yyyy/mm/dd
  • Disclaimer

    Never base important decisions based on the data here provided, but always take precautions with thunderstorms nearby! Don't hide under trees, get out of the water and if you're in open field make yourself as little as possible or lie down, this CAN save your life!
