What is pink lightning?

2 Answers

In snowstorms, though rare, lightning color can appear green or pink. Atmospheric particles, haze, raindrops, or dust can affect the color of lightning by absorbing or diffracting a portion of the white light of lightning.

Elements in the air, such as nitrogen, or oxygen, can cause the lightning flash to take on a different color like pink or even blue.
