There are many things about nature which even in the 21st century is not known to most of us. Nature has something new to offer each day and some of these things are so bizarre that it becomes hard to believe.
Recently, a tree struck by lightning, began to burn from inside. A video of the unique incident was shared by a Twitter user and it soon became viral.
In the 15-second clip, a blaze is glowing through an opening in the tree trunk. The part of the trunk is seen gradually turning into ashes. The caption of the incredible video reads, "A look inside a tree that has been struck by lightning."

I'm not an expert on these things but I heavily doubt that's how trees work regarfing lightning.— Svenobi (AKA Svennymat) (@Svenobi1) October 21, 2019
Why is the ground so dry and the sky so light, if there is a thunderstorm in progress or only very recently passed?— Julie 🏳️🌈 Montoya 🕷️ (@JulieMontoya20) October 20, 2019
I'm already suspecting trick photography here, and I haven't even done a frame-by-frame analysis yet.

I wonder if that’s real?— Gretchen Winans (@gretchen_winans) October 21, 2019
While some of the users compared it with the Great Eye from The Lord of the Rings movie series that was originally written by J R R Tolkien.

Looks like you could forge a Ring of Power in that thing...— Jamin Grey (@JaminGrey) October 20, 2019
However, this is not the first time that fire is seen burning inside a tree. Two separate incidents in 2017 left people appalled when an image and a video of such natural occurrence were shared on social media.
