Local photographer and weather fan Gregory Patrick captured these great photographs of lightning hitting One World Trade Center during the early morning hours on Tuesday.

"I go out for storms, and I’ve been watching radar looking for a storm to head downtown," said Patrick, who usually photographs circus performers for his entertainment company. "I've gotten shots of lightning hitting the tower from my roof in the East Village, but I wanted a shot from looking straight up."
