I didn't know where to put these, and as they involve some action and movements I decided to post them here.

Like the second photo the best. And would like to know who set this firework up? For what opportunity? I'm asking because I have never seen such a low ground firework with just one single kind of light. And then there are so many little light streaks ...

In photo #1 I am interested in the sparks on the ground which I find quite exciting and think they might have looked very interesting if a picture was taken from above. But I know, it's too late for that.

regards,
HTG

In Israeli army they clean weapons with a metal sponge that is used to clean frying pans, a friend of mine serves in the armory so she brought some.
We took some of it and connected it to a piece of steel wire and ignited it, spinning the wire gave these results, the 2nd photo came out like that because I started shooting as she finished spinning so some sparkles still were in the air.
It's not the regular sponge though... not this one:

The one we used is kinda made like fiber... I will try to get you a picture.

Good work. It would have been better if you couldn't see the building or the street light. But I guess thats not the point here. The sponge thing was a cool idea.

That was an interesting story. Would have never guessed it was a metal sponge causing the lights. So it looks like you could repeat it whenever you want to.

Those sponges must really be burning very rapidly and bright when I look at your pictures. Really cool.

Thank you for answering.

HTG

Yeah, it's called steel wool, if you push a 9 volt battery against the steel wool it will start on fire.
