Amateur video shows lightning strike a moving train in Tokyo.

The sky lights up before the train is hit, then a massive bolt makes contact with the train. Sparks are visible shooting up from the front of the locomotive, which eventually slows to a stop.

The Telegraph reports the train was traveling from the Izumi-Tamagawa Station to Noborito Station Monday evening over a railway bridge. Passengers onboard said the cars went dark temporarily. There were no reported injuries and the train was able to move again after 10 minutes.

Watch the video, released to AFP, to see the exact moment of contact.
