Statue of Liberty struck by lightning during thunderstorm

Social media is filled with posts depicting the severity of yesterday's rain—from flooded subways to power outages and more—but we found one specific photo taken by the Statue of Liberty that truly knocked us off our feet.

In the picture, taken by photographer Dan Martland and posted on Instagram, a lightning bolt seems to directly hit (or, honestly, come out of), Lady Liberty's torch.

Martland was able to catch the happening from a bunch of different perspectives, as seen in the carousel of photos he posted, each one cooler than the one before.

One of the pro's followers commented on the post, specifically asking Martland how he captured the event.
