Ever wonder what a lightning bolt looks like from just a few feet away? Two men experienced the terrifying event for themselves and survived. Even better, they managed to record the entire thing and, thankfully, uploaded the video to YouTube.
The video was posted by Daniel Dudman and shows his perspective from a boathouse off the coast of Sydney, Australia. We see the camera pan over the water to show massive storm cloud above. Then, out of nowhere, a devastating flash fills the screen. A moment later, Dudman and his friend Nick Panayiotou can be heard screaming in shock.
It’s almost impossible to see what’s happening but, if you pause the video at the right time, you catch can a bolt of lightning hit the water just a few feet away. It’s a pretty amazing sight.
Watch the video above and prepare to be… shocked!
