This T. Rex-Shaped Lightning Bolt Appeared Above The Perfect Location

Totally makes sense.

Whether you're witnessing hundreds of lightning bolts blazing up in the sky or using it to make music, there's no denying that lightning is incredible to watch. If you want a beautiful landscape to accompany it, there's no better place than a pristine National Park, right?

The U.S. Department of the Interior recently posted a picture on Facebook proving just how gorgeous such a scene would be, especially when the lightning looks different than you expect:


While one commenter on Facebook claimed it looked like a heart, it clearly looks like everyone's favorite prehistoric predator, the Tyrannosaurus rex

Let's be real for a second and agree that a T. rex made of lightning is simultaneously the most badass and terrifying thing that has ever happened anywhere — but the story gets even better because of where this picture was taken. 

This lightning bolt didn't appear at any old national park; it showed up above the Petrified Forest National Park in Arizona. The park itself is home to countless fossilized trees, plants, animals, and dinosaurs, ranging back well over 220 million years.

Arizona: If the scorpions, spiders, or heat don't get you, the sky dinosaurs made of electricity might.
