Lightning Illuminates Night Sky in Central Minnesota

Lightning put on an impressive show near Graceville, Minnesota, during a thunderstorm late on Monday, June 8, into the early hours of June 9.

Photographer Carol Bauer recorded footage of the flashes of lightning as it turned the sky purple behind storm clouds.

Bauer told Storyful that after the storm began she drove the country roads near her home so she could “enjoy the lightning show.”

The National Weather Service warned that severe storms were possible on Monday night. Showers and stormy conditions were also forecast for central Minnesota on Tuesday and Wednesday. Credit: Carol Bauer via Storyful
