(RNN) – Attention all weather lovers: one woman caught quite a light show while flying across the country on Thursday.

Traveler Gina Hyams said she was traveling from Newark, NJ to Denver Thursday afternoon when she caught a singular lightning strike 10 minutes outside of Denver International Airport.

“Caught this flying into Denver this afternoon yikes!!!” Hyams tweeted.

Hyams said the Southwest Airlines flight circled around for 15 minutes before landing because of thunderstorms in the area.
