WATCH: Spectacular video shows Malta blitzed by lightning

Watching lightning bolts from your bedroom window is one thing, watching as they strike right above you is something entirely different.

As storms raged across Malta and Gozo last week, Fredrick Muscat captured them in all their mesmerising beauty.

Now the talented Maltese photographer has released a breathtaking new time-lapse video, showing powerful thunderstorms and forked lightning sweeping across the skies.

Fredrick, from Mgarr, is regarded as Malta’s most dedicated storm chaser with more than 20 years of experience under his belt.

He told 89.7 Bay: ‘This is my first lightning time-lapse on Malta and Gozo.

‘My intention is to show a part of what I see during my trips when I storm chase around Malta.’

‘I have always wanted to make a video from the thousands of photos I take.

‘This video captures some of the best of storms I chased over the last four years’
