Fourth of July Fireworks Freak Accident in San Diego
Fireworks Explosion over downtown San Diego as a freak accident results in all of the Fourth of July fireworks launching at the same time. The "Big Bay Boom" was targeted to be San Diego's biggest fireworks display ever, with multiple, synchronized launching barges timed to music broadcast on a local radio station. The organizers have promised to put on a replacement show at their own expense.
The light of the fireworks became so bright, you could eventually see nothing but the exploding fireworks, as they lit up the cloudy skies above.
The fireworks in Mission Bay/Beach also went off at the same time in synchronized explosions. Shown here, the smoke from the fireworks, still undispersed by the light breeze, literally glows with the explosions from the succeeding launches. It was quite spectacular, if admittedly brief.
