It was so bright if you looked towards downtown it looked like the sun was setting in the east. I was seeing spots for an hour after looking directly at it. Everyone in my office had to pull their blinds down or risk doing damage to their eyes... no joke. Has anyone else seen this? I hope the stars aligned just right to produce this unbelievably bright phenomena, otherwise i'm going to be very disappointed I will no longer be able to look at the beautiful skyline during the sunset anymore.
I live a few blocks east of this building. On a sunny morning, I'll receive an intense blast of light from the rising sun. It lasts about 10 minutes, and I think it's pretty cool, to be honest.
