I have just this morning (31 Dec 2013) returned after an emergency call out. I almost didn't make it. Dubai is attempting a world record fireworks display. It is happening right on my front porch, so to speak. I don't yet know exactly what kind of view I'll have from my balcony, but I hope it is a good one.

They plan to have 450,000 individual fireworks synchronized from 400 different locations along 99 km (about 60 miles) of shoreline. I live right on one of the shores. I hope my camera takes a decent shot if the fireworks are close enough.

In the opening scene (which lasts about 2 seconds), my apartment is about in the center of the screen. I live about halfway up the Palm Jumeirah trunk, on the "right hand" side as you view it. I can see both the Burj al Arab and the Burj Khalifa from my balcony. The big shows lasted over 30 minutes in total, with maybe 2 minutes between them. In all, there were fireworks going off for nearly an hour.

Holy cow ... the scale is breathtaking ... how big those islands are cannot really be properly appreciated in the dark, either ...

on a side note ... I wonder if the International Space Station happened to be flying over during that show ... must have been pretty awesome even from up in orbit ...

further note to readers: be sure to click on some of the other videos found in the side panel: the fireworks launched off the tall buildings is unlike anything I've ever seen before.

... good thing everything there is sand ... Laughing
