25 Alarming Pictures Of Lightning Strikes That Are Strikingly Beautiful

Posted by , Updated on June 2, 2016

Do you think lightning strikes are beautiful? True, some people fear this natural phenomenon and with good reason. Annually, anywhere between 6,000 to 24,000 people around the world are killed by lightning strikes. Lightning can travel through the air at 270,000 miles per hour or 75 miles per second and burns at 30,000 degrees Celsius (almost six times as hot as the sun). With statistics like these, you can’t help but notice that lightning is pretty scary. Nevertheless, sometimes the scariest things are oddly the most beautiful. Today, we are going to take a thrilling look at 25 alarming pictures of lightning strikes. They are scary but oddly beautiful (though I seriously don’t know what I would do with myself if I were to find myself in a storm producing this kind of spectacle).
