Technically, lightning itself does not have a temperature. Allow us to explain that last fact. Technically, those 50,000 degrees are actually the temperature of the air or other materials as the lightning passes through it. The bolt itself is a movement of electrical charges, and for that reason, it does not actually have a temperature itself.
Not only does it strike the same places more than once, but also a single lightning bolt can strike more than one place at the same time. Double—or even triple—lightning strikes are not uncommon. For example, a couple years ago, one videographer recorded a single lightning strike hitting three of Chicago’s tallest buildings: the Willis Tower, Trump Tower, and the John Hancock Building.
