Did lightning strike St. Peter's Basilica the day the pope resigned?2/12/2013
Are you the kind of person who believes in omens? If so, what do you make of this stunning photo, snapped by an Italian photographer, of lightning appearing to strike the top of St. Peter’s Basilica the day Pope Benedict XVI announced his resignation? A sign from above, a hoax or one lucky break for Filippo Monteforte, the Italian shutterbug who is credited with capturing the image? According to news agency Agence France-Presse, Monteforte reportedly took the photo Monday. Skeptics, of course, doubted that anyone could get that lucky and questioned the photo's authenticity, but others believed the photo was real and was a sign from above. [Source]
