STEAMBOAT Springs, Colorado, was briefly home to the world’s largest firework on 8 February. Weighing around 1270 kilograms, roughly the same as a small car, the 150-centimeter shell traveled at more than 480 kilometers per hour from a steel tube embedded in the nearby Emerald mountain.

The firework rose around 670 meters into the air before exploding, painting the night sky a vivid red and showering spectators with sparks. An attendee from Guinness World Records confirmed the new record. It had previously been held by a 1080 kilogram shell.
