Independence Day

For those into fireworks and the 4th of July.

The largest firework ever produced was Universe I Part II, exploded for the Lake Toya Festival, Hokkaido, Japan on 15 Jul 1988. A 1,543 pound shell, 54.7 inches in diameter that burst to a diameter of 3,937 feet for some very excited Japanese people.

Chk Chk Boom.
