They were about 100 yards from the Deepwater Horizon when the masiverig’slights suddenly went out, and then the first of a series of massive booms shook the rig. Immediately, Andry began videotaping the sequence of events.
What is unusualaboutAndry’svideoisthemasivebeam ofintense purple-blue light projecting skyward from the exploding Deepwater Horizon rig. As the video clearly shows, the purple-blue beam was very clear, intense and pronounced during the first 30 seconds of tape, and then faded to just a faint trace 3 minutes later at the concluding end of the video.
