Fireworks in reverse for New Year’s Eve in Melbourne

Points of light that swirl and come together like magical fireflies. The lights seem to be pulled to a center by bright lines before disappearing into a small bright flash. More ‘fireflies’ spark all around and it happens again. This is what fireworks in reverse look like.

This fireworks display was filmed by Julian Tay during Melbourne, Australia’s 2013 New Year’s Eve celebration
