Not the best show as I remember but what can you do... Actually not a show at all. Just private people trying their best.
 
Click the image below to get to the mouse over slideshow of the whole 30 minutes 'show'.
AF-S DX NIKKOR 10-24mm F3.5-4.5G ED.
Each frame at 8s, 10mm, f/5.6, ISO 100.

If you're wondered what are the red 'worms' on the sky right after the five big fireworks in the first plane these are the Chinese lampoons :) So sorry, not even a single UFO sighting tonight :P
And if you would like previous two years. Tighter frames. This year was wider cause we did not have New Years party in the main square <_<

That is a brilliant series of photos, Rospo!

Apart from the fireworks, I really lice the detail in the sky:  the stars and the high noctilucent clouds (?) passing over.  Ant the slow movement of the stars throughout the sequence is great !

Great concept and perfectly executed.

Happy Newyear

Thanks :)

The weather was out of this world. Last month was cloudy 24/7. Literally. You wouldn't even see the Sun or the Moon. But this time. Crystal clear sky :)

 

The clouds, have no idea if they're this kind. Maybe, but won't guess.

 

And a little astronomy geek show as I know a little more bout it than bout the clouds ;)

Beginning of the slideshow:

On the left the tail of Ursa Major.

In the center Leo constellation.

On the far right Procyon of Canis Minor.

 

End of the show:

Arcturus from Bo├Âtes constellation is rising on the left side.

 

Unfortunately the Mighty Orion was only on one of the test shots. 5 hrs before midnight...

Really nice, and really creative.  Great work!  Rod, the "clouds" you are seeing, I think, are actually smoke from the fireworks.
