Lightning has struck the Angel Moroni statue atop the LDS Church's new Oquirrh Mountain Temple in South Jordan.
"A work crew will re-gild the statue as soon as possible," church spokesman Scott Trotter said Monday.
The gold-leaf sculpture, 10-feet 6-inches tall, was singed Saturday.
But such acts of nature are not unheard of. Lightning hit the Moroni on American Fork's Timpanogos Temple and on the Dallas Temple. The then-angel-less spire of the Provo Temple once set off a fire alarm after drawing a lightning bolt.
The Oquirrh Mountain Temple is open to public tours until Aug. 1 and will be formally dedicated Aug. 21-23.
