Iwo Jima lightning, April 20, 2015 (Gary Silverstein)

Monday night’s lightning storm in the Washington, D.C. area was something special. So special that this is the fourth post we’ve published with related photographs.

This set of photos (above and below), taken at the Iwo Jima Memorial in Arlington, serves as a spectacular grand finale.
