Lumos Maxima is the incantation to a charm that can be used to produce a blinding flash of bright white light from the tip of the wand[1]. This light can be thrown far off of the wand, illuminating the surrounding area for several minutes after its initial casting before darkening once more[3].

To cast it, one must flick their wand, then draw it back and flick it a second time, after which it will light, as noted in chapter thirty-two of Extreme Incantations by Violeta Stitch[1]. The spellbook also included a diagram depicting the proper casting of this spell[1].
