It looks like the lightning's target was New York's famous Statue of Liberty!

Jay Fine, a photographer from New York, had to stand outside, at night, in a storm to get this picture.

He waited two hours, and took 80 shots before he got lucky with this particular bolt of lightning at 8.45pm on 22 September 2010.

Jay said he had been waiting 40 years to get this picture!
