Some say I'm real, some say I'm not,
but all would agree that I'm very hot.
I jump around from place to place,
Lighting up whatever I touch.
If you confront me face to face,
You won't be left with much.
With a shock, I'll leave you astounded,
Your friends who see me will be confounded.
What am I?
I'll upload a hint if needed, but I'd like to see if anyone can tackle this first.
