I can attest to this being amazingly accurate now, watching the strikes happen in real time and seeing this map update accordingly.

Cool.

Nice! You can also see lightning on Foreflight, along with the rain and storms and more. As a FRO as well as MP, the tools we have now for near real time data are incredible.
