The target of this publication is to debate our current knowing of atmospheric electrical energy at Earth and at the different planets of our sunlight method. The booklet is prepared into bankruptcy that are creation, Ionisation strategies in Planetary Atmospheres, Measurements and results of thunderstorms and lightning, New missions, dangers and atmospheric results, Charging formation, Electromagnetic signature of discharge within the surroundings. The publication is prepared that allows you to brazenly talk about of all matters regarding atmospheric electrical energy utilized to our sunlight approach planets. a part of the contrinutors are specialists of atmospheric electrical energy who will describe the current knowing of this phenomena on the Earth and one other half correspond to specialists of planetary technology operating both on tool advancements aiming to monitor the atmospheric electrical energy on different planets or on theoretical versions of planetary atmospheric electrical energy.

This is because the height of the cloud layer above the surface and the extreme atmospheric pressure requires an extremely high electric filed for cloud-to-ground breakdown to be produced. It is possible that Venusian intracloud discharges will not resemble terrestrial intracloud flashes, and will have different signatures in the electromagnetic and optical bands. It may well be that the luminosity of Venusian lightning is significantly lower than that of terrestrial ones and that they are completely obscured by the upper cloud layers.

The IRTF allocates 50% of its observation time to solar-system bodies and made numerous contributions to the study of the outer planets’ atmospheres (Sánchez-Lavega et al. 2001; Orton et al. 2006; Simon-Miller et al. 2006; and many others). The IRTF is able to identify trace molecular constituents in planetary atmospheres, thus providing indirect evidence of the presence of lightning, based on the fact that lightning is a high-temperature discharge process that produces non-equilibrium chemical compounds (Bar-Nun 1975).
