The Ross Lions Annual Fireworks Display took place in the grounds of the Chase Hotel this year and the event was as spectacular and noisy as ever! The bonfire was lit at 7:00 pm with the fireworks beginning at 7:30 and lasting for about half an hour.

It was a warm night for November and I'm sorry to disappoint those looking for 'ghostly orbs' but the feint spots on the dark areas of the photograph of spectators below are caused by a fine drizzle landing on the camera lens. The rain was very light and did not cause a problem at the event. The weather may have deteriorated later in the evening but I'm not absolutely sure as, having been up since 3:30 am, starting work at 4:30, I was totally shattered and went home to bed immediately after the main display.

This could be a photograph of a gaseous nebula taken from the Hubble Space Telescope but it's actually a rocket at Ross Lions Firework Display. Echoes of the big bang as seen in the visible light spectrum on outermost regions of the universe or a pyrotechnic display in the grounds of the Chase?
