There are few things more beautiful than listening to thunder crack and watching lightning dance outside your window. But when a thunderstorm rolls over the tallest building on the planet, the effect is even more amazing than you could possibly imagine.
The footage below, taken in Dubai, captures an explosive lightning strike over the Burj Khalifa, which stands 2,722 feet tall. Fortunately for us, Instagram user Fazza decided to share his chilling, beautiful video with the rest of the world.
Interestingly enough, the keen-eyed photographer who caught this shocking spectacle also goes by the name of Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the crown prince of Dubai! Even royalty can’t deny the allure of nature.
