To see a video of Jacci in the field chasing the elusive perfect lightning shot view this video which has had over 20 million hits. It shows how close Jacci was to the actual strike. There are a lot of videos showing lightning strikes however there are limited videos showing how close a person was in relation to where the lightning hit and that makes this video rather special
