Here’s what caused the overnight light show near the waterfront in Lackawanna

You may be wondering what was behind the flashes in the night sky near the lakefront in Lackawanna early Friday.

Lackawanna Police and Lackawanna Fire responded to the area of the Bethlehem Steel site, but turned things over to National Grid.

According to National Grid, sparking wind turbine equipment belonging to the Steel Winds energy project caused the light show.

National Grid said it did not receive any requests to de-energize the 13,800-watt equipment. It said anything sparking has been fixed, and any hazards to the public alleviated.
