VIDEO: Check out the astonishing moment that a plane was struck by a bolt of lightning

A bolt from the blue.

This YouTuber was videoing footage of a rainstorm to show to his wife when he inadvertently captured the moment that a lightning bolt zapped a Delta Airlines plane in Atlanta, Georgia.

A few seconds into the video there's a classic, apocalypse-movie flash of lighting straight to the tail-end of the Boeing 737.

What's most important is that planes like this one are designed to withstand being struck by lightning, and none of the passengers were injured.

That means we can enjoy this video, safe in the knowledge that nobody was hurt by the totally-super-awesome-badass bolt of lightning descending from the heavens to remind us that nature is and always will be the boss.
