Lightning storms can be stunning events to behold, but one recent storm in Guatemala was even more impressive than usual.
The storm, which took place in the skies over Antigua, saw lightning strike the top of the Volcan de Agua volcano .
Photographer Sergo Montufar snapped an incredible photo of the event, which NASA has now featured as its Astronomy Picture of the Day.
NASA wrote: “Pictured earlier this month in a two-image composite, lightning stems from communication antennas near the top of Volcán de Agua (Volcano of Water) in Guatemala.”
Despite happening around 6,000 times every minute, amazingly, scientists are still unclear about the details of what causes lightning.
