Lightening is a pretty amazing yet dangerous element of nature. I once had lightening strike so close that I felt the heat, and the hair on my arms way standing straight up. And I won't tell you the condition of my underwear. But when it's captured on video, you can see the power of nature in action.

Watch as a bolt of lightening hits the ground. If you pause the video using the keyboard spacebar, you can see the bolt in all it's fury.
