Lightning on Agua's Summit

August 02, 2015


Summary AuthorJuan Carlos Carrillo 

Agua Volcano in Guatemala is lit up by a bolt of cloud-to-ground lightning. With the storm's cloud base close to Agua’s 12,340 ft (3,760 m) summit, rock outcrops and man-made structures alike are often targets of lightning strikes. In this case, the focus was one of the several antennas placed on Agua's flattened summit. Photo taken on June 13, 2015.
