heat lightning is not in fact distinct from regular lightning, but refers to lightning that is distant enough to be seen without the accompanying thunder. the term is mostly used in the south, where summer storms are particularly common.

wind and waves recorded shortly after midnight in avon, north carolina, while i sat and watched the heat lightning out over the ocean. piano recorded at home in richmond.
