The Texas-based artist and videographer Jeremiah Warren mounted a wide angle lens camera on some fireworks to give us the fireworks' angle on their own brief, bright trajectory. Not surprisingly, the very cool two-minute video -- equal parts Strangelove, Pynchon, and vertigo -- went viral over the weekend.
For more information about Warren's camera set-up, check out his Flickr page.
