Paper Abstract

In this work the general conditions for some bodies of a solar System (Mars atmosphere, high Earth's atmosphere, the near-surface atmosphere of comets) at which one is possible formation of ordered structures in dusty plasma of lightning's. Existence of discharges in a dust-atmosphere of comets and at dust storms on Mars while only conjecture, but, despite of it the author has found possible to discuss conditions of formation of ordered structures from charged microparticles on these bodies of a solar System. The estimations of dusty plasma parameters originating at such discharges are made. On the basis of these estimations is drawn a conclusion that the dusty plasma in conditions of a Mars atmosphere, gas-dusty atmosphere of comets and in high layers of a Earth's atmosphere, will have properties, close to properties of laboratory dust plasma, in which one the ordered structures from charged microparticles are supervised.
