The St. Petersburg ‘Bomb’ Flash

This massive flash of light at a power station near St. Petersburg, Russia, has that country’s conspiracy theorists suggesting it was a test of a neutron bomb and other unlikely scenarios. For me the best part is the driver’s choice of music as the “bomb” goes off. Note that Russia Today advises:

Authorities say the flash was caused by ‘technical malfunctioning’ which led to a temporary power blackout. No one was hurt in the incident.

    Neutron bomb? If it was anywhere near a populated area, there would be a large pile of bodies.

      In Russia people kill bombs…… I’m going to go sit in a corner now and think about what I just said.

        Good, you go sit in that corner.

    Looks like a High voltage arc across a transformer and it blowing at the power station.

    ya you can see the transmission lines going into the station, fyi they are the big metal poles with the lines attached to them maybe like a 230kv or 115kv, I have seen a staion get crossphased and it looked real similar
