This is the spectacular moment a bright beam of sunlight illuminated a skyscraper - while leaving the rest of the city in complete cloudy darkness.The extraordinary moment took place in West Kowloon, Hong Kong, and brought to life the 1,588ft tall, 108-floor International Commerce Centre (ICC).



The scene was reminiscent of the Hollywood blockbuster Independence Day when an alien spaceship fired a laser beam down from the sky at New York's Empire State Building.
