Severe weather was caught on camera in California this week.

Get ready, this one will make you jump!

The man who got this picture was recording a hail storm when the bolt hit the ground just a few feet away.

But amazingly, he claims he didn’t see the lightning when it happened.

The man says he heard a loud crash, but it wasn’t until he played back the footage that he actually saw the lightning strike.

Frame by frame, the photographer says the strike only took one-thirtieth of a second.
