This is the electrifying moment a lightning strike that looks like a heart was captured as it blazed through the sky.

Students from the Heze technical College had been watching the thunderstorm from the dormitory when one of them grabbed the camera and decided to film some of the dark clouds and lightning strikes that were striking the ground on 13th June.

But the person filming was not expected to suddenly catch this spectacular heart-shaped lightning strike which some people said looked like a heart-shaped balloon on a string as it stretched down towards the ground after it was formed.

The college is located in Heze, which is the westernmost prefecture-level city in China’s Shandong province, where the students had been enjoying the lightning spectacle as the grey clouds formed and it started raining before the thunder and lightning then joined in the show.

The strange-shaped lightning was widely shared on social media, where it attracted many comments. It was shared under the headline: “I never knew lightning could be so romantic.”
