It blew up inside the machine, from what I read it's not that dangerous, but it didn't look good. This was the 02 lamp that blew up at 1500 hours a few months back, but my 03 lamp has just dimmed but nothing happened yet.
I vacuumed the area first (they say don't do this, use playing cards, but whatever), so then I was trying to put the bulb in the trash and as I was carrying it, the tiny dust shards were spilling out the cracked lamp all over the floor, like a shiny reflective radio-active looking substance.
Probably did not hurt me, but it still looked really scary the way the dust was so shiny and tiny, felt like I should have been in a Hazmat suit.
