Hey these are some shots of the July 4th Celebration here in Mississippi. While doing this post, I got curious about fireworks and found some great information on the history of them here!
Did you know they orginated in China during the Han Dynesty (200 B.C.)? That is crazy considering that gunpowder was not discovered until at least 600 A.D. Again, the Chinese during the Sui and Tang dynasties! If you have time today or over the weekend you should go by a read about it at the link above! It is not too long but great info!
For more Skywatch click the link! If you have never been a part of this event, you got to check it out! Tom, Dot, Sandy and others have started a spectacular way for you to travel around the world in just a few minutes. I promise you will not be disappointed! It officially starts at 19:30 hours GMT. For all you fellow Americans, that is 01:30 P.M. Central Time! If that makes no sense to you just go there now!
