Stunning footage has emerged of the Statue of Liberty in New York City being struck by lightning, which has led to awe but also some feeling that it is an ominous premonition.

With dark storm clouds looming above the famous monument man named Mickey Cee on Twitter filmed what was about to happen next and captured a truly incredible moment where the statue was hit by a huge lightning strike.

The footage has already gone viral and has been viewed more than one million times and has been shared by several major news outlets.

However, despite inspiring awe, people's familiarity of what happens to certain objects after they are struck by lightning in movies (we're looking at you Ghostbusters 2), have people fearing the worst about what might happen next or maybe it is symbolic of what is currently happening in the US government.

We'll be honest we definitely didn't have 'statue of liberty being struck by lightning' on our 2020 bingo card but it's just another example of how unpredictable this year has been.
