Residents of a Virginia town think they say Michael moonwalking during the storm.
This week marks six years since the untimely death of the King of Pop, Michael Jackson. Every year, people come together to remember the man and his contributions to the entertainment community and the greater world. There have been many "freak" accidents in the last few years that have shown us that Michael might not be as far away as we think, and on Virginia town thinks they were audience to one of his performances.

The central Virginia town was experiencing some rough weather on Thursday, when something dancing across the sky caught their attention.
Photographer John Plashal said he was unaware of the Jackson imagery when he first submitted photos to the WTVR CBS 6 Facebook page following the storm. He said a storm chaser app, not a higher calling, compelled him to set up his camera outside Satterwhite’s Restaurant in Goochland where took several photos of the lightning storm.
“The image that you see of Michael Jackson just happens to be there,” Plashal said. He insisted he added nothing to the photo. “It’s pretty wild.”
Plashal says that is definitely a fan of the star and his music. He days that he can remember exactly where he was when he found out that the King of Pop had died, much like many of us can remember hearing that fateful news in 2009. “I was at the pool with friends. My friend got a text that Michael Jackson had just died,” Plashal said. “He was an icon.”
