Remarkable 'One In A Million' Moment Bolt Of Lightning Strikes Curvature Of Rainbow

Remarkable 'One In A Million' Moment Bolt Of Lightning Strikes Curvature Of Rainbow

This is the 'one in a million' moment a bolt of lightning struck the curve of a rainbow:

Steven Miller, 33, had been teaching a personal training class in his garden when the storm arrived near his home.

Seconds after getting his smartphone out, a large bolt of lightning crossed the sky, following the path of the bend of the rainbow.

In theory it shouldn't be that rare to see this sort of thing but to actually grab a photograph of the two in action together is slightly trickier.

Steven, from Wrexham, north Wales, said: "It was a case of being in the right place at the right time. I was teaching a class in my back garden when I heard this constant rumbling.

"It almost sounded a bit like an earthquake with its long mumbling. I had never heard anything like it before. After the class was over I decided to take a look at it from my front door."

"It was so spot on. It was a one in a million shot. I had always dreamed of getting footage like this. I was doing research online and it turns out the footage is incredibly rare.

"There was a video of a rainbow striking through a rainbow but not on the actual curvature of it. It was just gold. Some people have said it's the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow."

Jonathan Moore captured the video of the bolt from the blue on his Thinkware dashcam. He explained that the lightning was unexpected, especially considering the fact the skies were sunny and the nearest thunderstorm was eight miles away from his home at the time.

A series of summer thunderstorms moved across west-central Florida on 10 August, bringing lightning and gusty winds, according to the National Weather Service.

This is believed to be referred to as a 'bolt from the blue' by meteorologists and are described as lightning bolts that travel miles from actual thunderstorm clouds but then angle downward before striking Earth... fair enough.
