In the broadsheet some of the objects are shown burning on the ground with black smoke, as described. The black spearhead seen was only one, not a series as would be expected, and it was possibly seen from the side, unlike crespuscular rays. Also, there was only one not a number of them, and I would think the light beams would be more interesting than a section of black cloud..The last part of the Nuremburg account seems to describe a crepuscular/anticrepuscular ray;
After such events something like a black spear, the shaft from sunrise [east] and the head towards sundawn [west], has been seen with big thickness and length.
This whole event seems to be little short of a textbook account of various different kinds of atmospheric optics.
