WATCH: Woman captures double rainbow and lightning strike on camera


A woman in Australia was at the right place at the right time.

After a storm passed through Canberra, Australia earlier this week, Kerry Furner looked up to the sky to find a glorious double rainbow, reported Yahoo News.

She quickly pulled out her camera to capture the impressive sight.

“Aw, pretty. Double rainbow. Magic,” Furner could be heard saying in the video. As if that wasn’t exciting enough, as she panned across the vista a bolt of lightning lit up the sky even more.

“Did you get that?” one of Furner’s children can be heard saying. Luckily, she did.

She wasn’t the only who saw the colorful display as a local Facebook page documented other captures of the rainbows.

“As an intense cold front moved across the ACT yesterday afternoon, the storm resulted in an impressive lightning show, beautifully colourful skies at sunset, and a spectacular double rainbow afterwards,” the town’s official page noted.  “Did you snap any photos? We’d love to see your pictures.”

Despite the beautiful double rainbow, the storm brought some damage to the area.

“Luckily most of the cell passed through the rural parts of the Queanbeyan area and only caused trees to fall,” a local official said on Facebook. “No one was injured but many large trees needed to be cut by our volunteers to restore access to several properties in Royalla.”
