I guess I should clarify. I don't think it needs you to do anything 
other than keep your face glued to the window to make sure it doesn't 
become something else.  I've seen it a number of times and the only 
side effect seems to be a really dirty spot in the left rear corner 
of the chaff tray, made by sparks on the right side looking through 
the window.  Never seen sparks on the left side.
