270. I understand what I'm seeing just fine. Maybe my diction is off.
Imagine a campfire in the dark. You have flames giving off light, you have coals giving off
(feeble) light, and you have burning wood which does not itself give off light (unless it's
coals).

What I call incandescent is coals. Molten steel is also incandescent. It makes light
in the dark.

In your picture of burning plastic, I see flames, but I see no plastic "coals".

I therefore dispute the assertion that the yellow firefall off WTC2 could have been
burning plastic.
