Lalita Sahasranama # 232
mahesvarasya mahakalpe yat mahatandavam tasya saksini
The witness of the tremendously violent dance of Mahesvara at the close of the great cycle of creation.
The word Mahakalpa means the great dissolution, i.e., Pralaya
Saksini - She is called the witness because when the whole universe is dissolved into its cause, the self alone remains. Then the cosmic dance begins and there is no other witness except herself.
