Ever wondered what it would be like to watch fireworks from where the professionals are launching them?

Wonder no more. Dusty Baird, one of the spotters for Lantis Fireworks and Lasers, which put on the show after Saturday's Salt Lake Bees game, captured the spectacle with a GoPro camera. The approximately 10-minute video was uploaded to Youtube Sunday.

The pyrotechnics crew mounted the camera between the racks and kept a safe distance while the GoPro operated on its own. No one should physically be near launch pads, which is a safety concern.

"With all fireworks shows comes responsibility," said Ken Lantis, the company owner. "With professional guidance and training these shows are a very wonderful experience for the audience and pyrotechnician alike."

In the interest of full disclosure, the other spotter that night, Jeff McGrath, is an acquaintance of mine through The Daily Utah Chronicle.
