Yeesh! As if we needed another reminder not to mess with Mother Nature. A security camera captures just what happens when lightning strikes -- look what happens about 4 seconds into this short video:
From PetaPixel: "A bolt of lightning is seen in at least one of the frames, after which a number of shell-like explosions happen at the base of the trees. The footage was captured at 3:06 in the afternoon during a thunderstorm in North Jackson, Tennessee. YouTube user Philip S owns the security camera, a Cisco PVC2300 camera that is set to records continuously 24/7."
Talk about a one-in-a-million chance. To capture that on camera when you aren't even trying, that's quite a stroke of lightning luck!
