Simon confessed to torturing himself a bit by watching it six or seven times but couldn't find an answer to how it happened. 

He said people asked him if the sun was in his eyes but it was not the sun he miscontrolled it. 

"I had enough space to control it well. I tried to push it back out in front of me instead of just trapping it dead but in the end, it was just an accident", he said.
