A case with thermal effects was recorded by Lycosthenes in his Prodigiorum ac Ostentorum Chronicon:
"In 1520 AD in England, at Hereford, a colossal beam of fire was seen in the sky. Approaching the earth, it burned many things with its heat. After this, it ascended into the sky again and was seen to change its shape into a circle of fire."
