Lightning storms can be pretty dramatic but some are so large they can be seen from space.

British astronaut Tim Peake videoed time-lapse footage of a lightning storm he saw from the International Space Station.

He recorded it as the ISS flew from North Africa over Turkey towards Russia.

Check out the amazing video of the lightning storms.
