Substation Fire in Astoria Lights Up NYC Sky

Residents throughout New York City were left in shock and awe after the night sky was turned aqua blue after a fire at a Con Edison substation in Astoria.

According to Con Edison, an electrical fire at a substation on 20th Avenue and 32nd Street caused “a sustained electrical arc flash & transmission disturbance.”

Social media users from all over the five boroughs shared videos and photos of the effect last night.

Many feared an alien invasion due to the bizarre phenomenon while others were quick to post memes online.

There were no injuries reported.

Councilman Costa Constantinides tweeted last night that there were no air quality concerns for Astoria after the fire.
