Aliens in NYC? (mysterious blue flashes in sky)

The official line on the blue light phenomena is that at around 9:12 p.m. Thursday night there was an electrical surge, followed by an explosion, at a Con Edison substation in Astoria, Queens.

Con Edison spokesman Bob McGee sought to reassure New Yorkers Friday morning. “What people were seeing was an electrical arc flash,” he told CNN. The light was blue because of the nitrogen and oxygen in the air when the electricity arced through it, he added.

If you have ever lived through an ice storm in the south, you would know what a transformer blowing looks and sounds like. Lol

Hurricanes & tornadoes as well. Had one happen close by once; the light is eerie but the sound is surreal.

A car crashed into a mini-pickup truck across the street and drove it into a telephone pole.

There were two flashes– the first was the truck's battery exploding, the second was the transformer, a few seconds later.

Both flashes were spectacular. The battery explosion's sound was cover by the crash itself, but the transformer's expo was indeed spectacular in sound and fury.

PG&E said there were no PCBs in that one, but given their track record these days, I think back and wonder. They did have a clean up crew dressed in- HAZMAT lite, lol.

One Queens resident [was] so terrified, he grabbed a samurai sword, thinking “hostile” aliens were about to invade.
“I ran into my parents’ room and shouted, ‘Get up, it’s happening!’” said Spencer Pesce, “I swear to God, I thought it was aliens. If it was aliens, I was going to defend my family,” he said. “I don’t know what the aliens want.”

Forget the aliens, they can't afford the rent.
(That's why they invaded New Jersey in War Of The Worlds)
