Praising Virtual Firework displays


We didn't hear a great many fireworks this year. Despite the cancellation of the usual town display in the park individual efforts seemed quite restrained though they were spread over several days.

I did wonder though whether actual displays of arial chemistry are needed. Spectacular displays in many places have been filmed in recent years. Those could be made available on the Internet, or even broadcast on television on special occasions.

It should be possible to write a program to simulate a firework display, at a virtual location chosen by the user.

Pets need not be terrified, spectators need not be injured. Let all fireworks be virtual.
