Twitter user Mikey Cee was able to capture the exact time when a massive bolt of lightning struck on Statue of Liberty and he called it "The best video I ever captured". Looking at it, even you'd agree that it is one of the best and close shots you'd have seen of lightning on the iconic monument. It looks something you'd see in a movie with special effects but unless it's not. It is quite scary yet incredible at the same time.
