Today is America’s birthday. But you don’t have to reside in the United States to appreciate this amazing footage of a drone flying directly into a fireworks display.

Shot by Jos Stiglingh in West Palm Beach Florida, the footage was captured with a GoPro 3 Silver riding atop a DJI Phantom 2 drone. The first few moments are boring take off footage, but after that, it’s spectacular fireworks-in-your-face action.

I can’t wait to see the footage that emerges from tonight’s festivities.
