    Australia Presents Fireworks

    Every year during the summer, Montreal hosts an international fireworks competition.

    Last Saturday was Australia's presentation.

    Here is a link to the finale: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f3fmjAD66v8

    It is about 5 minutes long.

    The beginning and middle clips are also on youtube and the links can be found, of all places, within the thread about the weather.

    I thought it was a fabulous display and hope you guys like it, too.

    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    I wished they display fireworks here like that on the forth of July. I sit
    and watch these yahoos send them up one at a time dragging for a
    long time and I get bored.

    Thanks for sharing this, Stephen

    Very illuminating display of fireworks, especially the huge red glow at the end.
    It was fun to watch in full screen mode

    As a Sydneysider, to be quite honest, if I don't see another fireworks display it won't be too soon ... (slightly bitter and twisted I know)

    Thanks for the fireworks vids, gc; my favourites are the ones that have a different colour at the ends of their explosions, like at :32 of the second vid in the weather thread (blue at the tips of the white.) The sphere within a sphere effect is cool as well.

    Rojo, I quite agree. I thought those with the blue tips were especially cool. And the shapes from hearts to disks, very impressive.
