Most people only ever see fireworks from the ground, staring up and watching them explode into the night sky. But what would they look like if you saw them from above? Now there’s a video on YouTube that lets you find out!

The filming was done by a small GoPro camera attached to a balloon, which was released into the air so it could film the fireworks being let off from the ground below. The video itself is in slow motion, so we can really follow the trajectory of the fireworks instead of them being gone in the blink of an eye.

It’s incredible to see the fireworks shooting up into the air leaving a trail of smoke, zooming up towards you instead of away. We get a great view in this day time video, but I hope we get to see a night-time version too – I bet that would look even more spectacular.
