Anti-Matter Found in Lightning Bolts

I love lightning. It is one of the coolest things nature does...

While studying flashes of Gamma Rays in earth's atmospheric storms, the Fermi Space Telescope has detected the telltale signature of Anti-Matter in lightning. This is puzzling to most physicists, who are at a loss to explain the process which creates it. Most suspect it has to do with a new view of quantum storm dynamics being proposed, that basically implies that thunderstorms are a giant natural Linear Accelerator.

They also say, that with every flash, the anti-matter slowly nibbles away the Earth's atmosphere.
