RARE 360: close-range lightning bolt ejects from wall cloud directly overhead!

Tornado warned supercell produces an extreme close-range lightning bolt from a wall cloud directly over our position and thankfully, the bolt struck a nearby power pole instead of us! Be sure to point the view at the wall cloud when the strike happens – I repeated the same 30 second clip twice in case you miss it the first time and don’t feel like restarting.

Incredible motion as the mesocyclone was attempting to occlude overhead and produce a tornado, but the low-level shear vectors were not quite oriented properly.
