A world record fireworks display

To celebrate 50 years of that country's constitution, the government of Kuwait sponsored the world's biggest fireworks display.  According to the Daily Mail, it cost £10 million (about US $15.9 million at current exchange rates).

There are many more (and much larger) photographs at the link.  Here's a video recording of part of the display.  It's worth watching in full-screen mode.

That's pretty spectacular all right!  I'm amazed at how far it spreads across the skyline.  I wonder how long the 'firing line' of firework mortars was?
