Oops! Fireworks Simultaneously Ignite at San Diego's 4th of July Show
San Diego's Fourth of July fireworks show is boasted as one of the largest in the country -- now it can take the claim as one of the shortest. A technical error tonight led to nearly all of its fireworks igniting at once for a show that lasted about 15 seconds.
Officials said in a statement posted to its event homepage that signals tested properly before the show, and the cause is under investigation. "We sincerely apologize for the technical glitch that affected the #BigBayBoom," read a tweet posted by the Port of San Diego.
Some photos and, of course, commentary about the quick display are below.
The salad grown at Sierra Madre Middle School uses an indoor aeroponics system. This system uses 90% less water than conventional gardening methods and produces 30% more food. A single harvest can be ready in three weeks and a basic system costs $500.
