Video footage reveals the dramatic moment when lightning struck a television tower in Russia, during a thunder storm, lighting up the sky in a spectacular display. The TV tower was disrupted for a few minutes after the moment of impact.

The tower is the highest point of St. Petersburg and acts as a lightning rod-although moments like these rarely happen and even more seldom are they caught on film.
