Woman Catches Dangerously Close Lightning Strike On Camera (Video)

| by Jonathan Wolfe

A woman filming a beautiful summer rainbow had her footage interrupted by a very unexpected surprise last week.

The camera woman, YouTube user ingela tanneskog, says she was filming the “peaceful and quiet” scenery around her property when a lightning bolt struck down in front of her.There’s a flash of lightning accompanied by an extremely loud bang and a spark of fire.

Does lightning strike down all the time? Yeah, but getting such high quality footage of it happening is rare. As of this writing, the video has been watched over 375,000 times.
