Picture of the Day - Power of Christ

This image shows a powerful lightning bolt striking the famous Christ the Redeemer statue atop Corcovado Mountain above Rio de Janeiro last Thursday. A thumb at the end of the statue's left hand was damaged. Given how often the statue has been struck by lightning without being damaged I suspect this may have been a powerful positive stroke which type are much rarer than negative strokes.
