Check Out This HD Video of Last Night's Unearthly Glowing Sky and Flashing Lights in Astoria, Queens

By now you have probably heard about the Con Edison transformer explosion in Astoria, Queens, that turned NYC's night sky into an unearthly glowing and flashing blue light. There are plenty of spooky photos capturing the event, but check out this video shot by YouTuber actionkid105 from the neighborhood streets to get a sense of what it was really like. It seems straight out of a horror/sci-fi movie!

A Con Edison transformer exploded in Astoria, Queens, NYC, causing the entire sky to light up green and flash lights. People were reporting white smoke from the power plant. The electricity in my house surged and I immediately saw the sky green. It was one of the scariest moments I ever captured on video, I truly thought the world was ending at one point.
