The Best 15 Seconds of the July 4 Fireworks

Watch this HD video of lightning striking during the downtown fireworks display.


What could possibly be more amazing than a fireworks display over downtown Pittsburgh? A fireworks display with a dash of lightning.

We really enjoyed the potpourri of reactions to the dazzling bolt, which ranged from the startled whoooaaa to the jaded yaaaayyy to the happily-inebriated woooo-hoooo.

Bless your heart, Mr. Whoo-hoo. Keep doing your thing.

Also, did you spot the red fish fishworks near the end? Spectacular. Next year, how about penguins?
