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, a modified version of the Wand-Lighting Charm. 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.
To cast this light-creation spell, 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. The spellbook also included a diagram depicting the proper casting of this spell.
