Looks like square lightning

I live in North Phoenix in a rural community and live behind a wash.

I have a webcam in my backyard for security. It points North and if something passes by it will send 6 photos of it to my email.

On 7/31/16 there were a lot of lightning, no thunder. The next day I got a lot of email from the webcam because of the lightning. One in particular was shot at 8 pm on 7/31/16.

If you enlarge the photo you will notice a square object at the end of the lightning. I just thought the shape of this was unusual and I never saw square lightning before.
