This astonishing photograph shows San Francisco’s Bay Bridge being struck by a whopping NINE bolts of lightning.

Captured through a rain-streaked window by Phil McGrew, it certainly puts paid to the myth lightning never strikes the same place twice.

McGrew admitted he wasn’t brave enough to venture outside to capture the storm on Thursday night, but was delighted with his shot.

He told the Daily Mail: “When I looked at my camera, I had a few that were just dark, and then some were very bright where I had just missed the strikes. Then I saw this one, it was incredible.”
