God paid a visit to Maine this week, and it was scary as Hell.

A high school student in Grand Isle recently captured the insane moment that lightning struck the steeple of a church.

Carl Bouley was filming the rain over St. Gerard Catholic Church from his porch across the street when it happened, and his volunteer firefighter father went over afterwards to check on the damages.

The church has has actually been struck before in August of 2007, according to the Maine Sun Journal.

“It kind of scared me a bit,” he told the Journal. “It felt like a small shockwave hit.”

A second camera was able to capture what happened on the ground below at the exact same moment.

Great Scott!

This is what remains of the steeple peak of the church at Graun, a small settlement in Italy which was submerged in order for a local power plant to build a new hydro-electric dam. Check for more information over at Mental Floss!

This monastery was built outside of Chiatura, Georgia in the seventh century by ascetic Christian Monks. Visitors today have to scale a 130 foot ladder to reach the top. Don't look down!
