For a very short time frame Thursday night, the skies over Victoria looked like they were on fire creating stunning views all over the capital region – and to top it off, we were treated to a few amazing lightning strikes.

Within minutes, we were overwhelmed with photos being sent in by Victoria Buzz fans from all over. Did you miss it? No problem.

We compiled 24 photos from last nights’ sailor’s delight. Enjoy.
