    Yesterday morning there was a huge thunderstorm over Manchester, which was incredible. A building just down the road from me got struck, and so did the tallest building in Manchester - the Beetham tower which houses the Hilton hotel. A guy in the university caught the strike on his webcam, slowing it down too which is amazing to watch. Have a look yourself http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HTCCkXtFS34

    I don't think I've ever seen lightning strike anything in real life, or if I have it was over well too fast to notice!

    BTW, this is the tower. Some might say it looks like it's asking to be struck.

    It looks like the citadel from half life. By the way, there's a related video on the right of lightning striking a tree - much more impressive!
