    Interesting picture, especially to anyone that's been to Las Vegas or stayed in the Luxor hotel. A spectacular bolt of lightning strikes the pyramid shaped Luxor Hotel and casino during a thunderstorm.

    That is definatly a great shot, sure it has some lighting rods. Most tall buildings do these days. Awesome shot though!!

    Good pic! I love to watch lightning. I like to turn off the lights and just watch the show...plus Vegas is one of my favorite places in the world!

    What are the odds (pun intended) of getting that on film.
    Preplanning ssure pays off.

    The real question is..."what are the odds of it raining in Vegas?".

    I copied it the day it happen on the 18th but just now got around to posting.
    I don't see how anyone ever got that shot but there is people that set up for them.

    Heres one I took in 1999, at 10X zoom, the guy is working on the light. They also have lighting rods down the four sides. As you can tell, I had a low resolution camera back then.
    Another at the pool. (my beard still had a little black then) :lol:

    Thanks to all for looking and commenting.

    Lighting rods with cables to the ground. It's pretty common for tall buildings to be hit but not everyday that it's captured with a camera.
