Alien invasion? New Yorkers stunned as sky turns blue

One Astoria resident and her boyfriend immediately hopped in their vehicle with their cats in tow after witnessing Thursday night's supernatural glow radiating from the Con Edison substation at 20th Avenue and 32nd Street.

"Small, blue explosion near LaGuardia has knocked out power at the airport and surrounding area, ' said user Mason Mccoy". Some power outages were being reported in the wake of the explosion, which was visible across much of the city.

The fault affected some subway service and even led to flight delays at LaGuardia. The light went from white to yellow to an incandescent blue - and with a level of clouds hanging above the New York City skyline, the effect was striking.

The issue caused a transmission dip in the area, and Con Edison crews responded with the Fire Department of New York, Con Edison said.
