Though most people have seen lightning before, they've probably never seen it quite this way before. In the video below, a videographer captures lightning in slow motion, showing a side of of a natural phenomenon that's even more dramatic than you thought.
Taken in Manchester, England, the video shows the lightning bolt strike the ground. At first it appears in a bright flash of light most people expect from a lightning strike, but what comes after is really something.
Rather than disappear altogether, the bolt dissipates, dissolving into smaller little sparks before fading away into the air.
If you watch the video below, you'll see exactly what that means. You'll understand just how strange and beautiful lightning really is, but you definitely won't want to get any closer to it.
