STRIPPED BY LIGHTNING
In this incredible sighting, we see a tree completely stripped of its bark after being struck by lightning. The photograph was taken by Redditor Fidget08 who says he noticed the tree on his way to work this morning. The photo was submitted a mere 4 hours ago on Reddit and has quickly ascended to the top post on the front page, amassing a staggering 468,000 views at the time of this posting.
The photo was taken outside of Hennessy Hall (The Mansion), a 100-room Georgian-style building designed in the 1890s by Stanford White. It replicates a wing in Henry VIII’s Hampton Court and is located at Fairleigh Dickinson University in Madison, New Jersey.
