    Nature's Lightning Show Over Island Research Station


    After a long day tagging and sampling sharks near the Florida coast, research interns with the University of Miami's RJ Dunlap Marine Conservation institute settled down on the school's private research island to witness an incredible summer fireworks display. The team perched on the roof of the island's house to witness two intense storm systems sandwiching the full "strawberry" Moon.


    Storms like this are common around Florida in the summer months and usually occur every afternoon thanks to it's endless supply of moisture, unstable air and sea breezes. These ingredients cook up intense thunderstorms which can create some pretty incredible summer skies.
