She Was Driving In A Thunderstorm When She Caught This Epic Explosion On Camera

When I was little, my parents used to tell me that lightning was just God and the people in heaven having a really elaborate photoshoot.

Nothing says summertime quite like an afternoon thunderstorm. The loud crashes of thunder mixed with the flashing imagery of lightning provide the perfect cinematic entertainment without having to pay to go to the movies.

As cool as thunder and lightning may be, the latter can also be incredibly dangerous. There are an estimated 100 lightning strikes on Earth every second, and each bolt can possess around one billion volts of electricity. Nearly 2,000 people are killed each year as a result of being struck by lightning.

Check out these insanely awesome yet terrifying lightning strikes.
