Description

Capturing the powerful beauty of Mother Nature, the footage shows clouds racing across the starry sky before it is spectacularly lit up by lightning in a powerful thunderstorm. Not only does the awe-inspiring footage capture the Milky Way during a thunderstorm but what makes this clip even more special is it was shot in just six hours in the Namib Desert which receives less than 100mm of rain a year. Tour Guide Brendon Cremer admits he got a lot more than he bargained for when he shot the video as he’d initially only set out to film star trails. Brendon, 34, who was leading a group of tourists in Deadvlei Sossusvlei, Namibia, at the time, said the timing of the footage was truly unique.
