Zones of Lightning Storms? [ID: 945]

If possible, I would like Juno to observe, photograph and study lightning storms, please. I would be interested to know if lightning only occurs in water/ice clouds. I would also be interested if sprites, elves and jets also occurs on Jupiter or if it's unique to Earth.

    Lightning on Jupiter plausibly implies lightning on gas giant worlds generally, possibly including gas giant exoplanets, or even super-giant Brown Dwarves? If so, "exo-lightning" might one day be viewable from other star systems, or even from "rogue" Brown Dwarves roaming the interstellar reaches??

    The lightning would be very interesting to observe and see if there are any differences from what we see on Earth.

    Studying this region of Jupiter will provide valuable insight into its atmospheric circulation and composition.
