Welcome to the Microsferics project!

Microsferics Lightning Detection Network, MicroLDN, is a low cost, high accuracy experimental lightning detection network currently operating in parts of Europe and North America and Australia.

Our hardware is capable of running stand alone without a PC requiring little power making it suitable for
off grid / solar installation. It only requires an internet connection and 12volt dc.

It is GPS disciplined to accurately time stamp received signals accurate to within microseconds.
It is also compatible with the Boltek range of lightning detectors, making them capable of networked lightning locating using the signal Arrival Time Difference locating method.

Browse this website to learn more about how it works, how you can participate and help expand the network, or view real-time lightning maps for the areas currently covered.
