Boat passengers saw a dark, then bright cloud dropping fire over Westminster. About 8 P.M. they observed "a white bright cloud which gave such a light that they could plainly see the windows of the Parliament House, and people walking to and fro upon Westminster Bridge".
The cloud was seen to "drop down fire several times upon Westminster Flail and then it removed and (flew) over the Parliament Flail and did drop down fire upon that also several times".
