"Raising her wand, she sends a fiery bolt towards the grand window opposite. As it explodes, a blast of cold air sweeps the room, extinguishing the candles."

This spell releases a burst of blue light, which causes a huge explosion that ravages and devastates everything in its range. Additionally, it is used to smash windows.

Known uses

  • Bellatrix Lestrange used the spell in the Great Hall in her insane celebratory outburst after the death of Albus Dumbledore in 1997. The force of the spell shattered the hall's windows and extinguished the floating candles, though the House Point hourglasses were unaffected.
