Jack Brandenburg, a mate aboard the Mesabi Miner, hit that jackpot this week. He was in the pilot house of the 1,004-foot freighter headed downbound in Lake Michigan when a storm rolled across the lake.



He was able to get an amazing photo of lightning forking down from the sky, lighting up the front of the freighter.

His image was widely shared on social media
