Lightening is a huge charge of electricity and thunder is the sound that lightening makes. Because light travels faster than sound we generally hear the thunder after the lightening has hit but that's what it is... The sound of lightening vibrating through the sky.

The closer you are to the lightening strike, the more sharp the thunder sounds. You might hear a thunder clap or a sharp boom noise if you were really close to the lightening. The further away you get the more like thunder this sounds.

Lightening itself is caused by particles of ice and matter in the clouds bumping against each other and causing electric responses. Try banging two stones against each other and you'll see a spark - it's like that... Only on a larger scale!

Thunder is the sound made by lightning. Depending on the nature of the lightning and distance of the hearer, it can range from a sharp, loud crack to a long, low rumble.
Lightning is the flash of light that accompanies an electric discharge in the atmosphere (or something resembling such a flash).
