There was an eerie orange glow in sky during a flash downpour across Ottawa Thursday night.

On social media, the storm brought a deluge of photos as people captured dark clouds, flashing lightning and the golden sky that followed.

Take a look:

Something's brewing...

Dark skies in the east.

And to the west.

Time to batten down the hatches.

Lightning flashes.

The clouds had an apocalyptic feel.

Some people made the best of a windy situation.

The night had a golden finish.
