Obviously these crappy screencaps don't do them justice, watch a video.
What The?: Videos Of ‘Strobe Rocket’ Fireworks Being Launched

Note: Epilepsy warning.

These are a couple videos of ‘strobe rocket’ fireworks being launched. As a man who prides himself on his extensive firework knowledge, I will admit I was shamefully unaware of these. Are they even legal? Because, honestly, there’s no way you could unknowingly witness one of these in real life and not think it’s some sort of military attack. I mean I just watched a couple Youtube videos of them and I’m still not convinced somebody didn’t push a big red button. Was it me?! Did I finally do it?! *sighs* A boy can dream.
