Lightening strikes St. Peter's Basilica after Pope resigns
It strikes twice apparently.
As the world reeled with the news that Pope Benedict XVI was to resign, another bolt from the blue was to hit the Vatican within hours. This time quite literally.
A bolt of lightning - surely not a message from above - was photographed striking the lightning rod on the top St Peter's Basilica, not by one, but two photographers. Or, indeed, maybe more?
One of those was photographer Alessandro Di Meo, who was in the area following the breaking news of the resignation. When the first bolt struck, he immediately moved to a position where he would be able to record another strike. It was, he says, a race against time but also against misfortune.
"While I was cleaning the lens from raindrops a first lightning bolt hit the dome and I could not help but watch," he says.

The Cardinals are forbidden from voting for someone who is not a catholic.
