Lightning hits 13abc tower

Posted: Updated:
It's normally very difficult to capture lightning in real-time.  Professional photographers and hobbyists use special shutter adapters to get the perfect shot.  But when a massive lightning bolt nailed our 13abc broadcast tower at around 8:05 Tuesday night, it knocked out our communication with the TARTA Tower.  That frozen shot sealed the moment (and froze some signals).
Here's an even clearer shot from our engineer Steve Pietras.  He put his drone up right before the storms made it to his house and he got the same bolt hitting the 13abc tower (Steve is very careful with his safety and equipment). 

Enjoy!
