Abstract : An improved atmospheric electrical current detector for measuring current flow in the atmosphere which includes a first hemispherical shell and an opposed second hemispherical shell insulated from each other by an insulating ring and containing therin an electronic package. The entire detector is positionable above the surface of the earth and since the shape is regular, the distortion of the atmosphere potential is calculable and direct current readings of atmospheric current can be obtained.
