    World's Largest Firework

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    This video shows first of all some still pictures and then video of the amazing 48" diameter 420kg Japanese "Yonshakudama" shell "the world's largest single firework"

    When fired the shell rises to over 2,700ft with a bloom diameter greater than 2,400ft and launched every September 9th and 10th for the Katakai-Matsuri Festival in Katakai town, Ojiya-city, Nigata prefecture Japan, it serves as a dedication to the god of the shrine. The Godzilla waking "Yonshakudama" shell comes in two types, the "Brocade crown over small flowers" and the "Floral shell of shells twice blooming".

    When I was a kid I sent a neighbor to the hospital when I lit a whole pack of jumping jacks. One went right into his pocket and burned his ass.

    Usually go up to Industry Hills Golf Course and watch about 4 or 5 Firework Shows going off at the same time in the Valley below.

    It was a big deal when I was a kid. We'd have our own little box that we'd set off in the street and then watch the town show from the roof of our house. I can take it or leave it now.
