A couple weeks ago there was a storm in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. During that storm the famous "Christ the Redeemer" statue was struck by lightning. This is not that surprising because lightning will often strike the tallest point; the 700 ton "Christ the Redeemer" is 130 feet tall and stands atop 2,296 foot tall Corcovado Mountain, so it has a pretty good chance of being struck. It is, however, rare that this would be captured on film. The resulting image is pretty impressive, I'm sure that to be there and witness it in person would have been even more so.
