Just a question of planetary magnetism

    How many planets do we know of that actively have thunder storms? If possible please go into detail about the strength and occurance of these thunder storms on alien planets.

    This sounds like something you could do some quick research on.

    Here's a start: http://www.nineplanets.org/

    When you say "alien planets", I presume you know we can only talk about planets in our Solar System? And of course, there are only 6 (and a half) planets that have an atmosphere, so your search will be pretty narrow.
