Must see: Amazing video of drones flying through fireworks

Social media produced some fireworks of its own Friday with posts featuring two videos that captured bursting shells and colorful sparks as drones flew through the displays.

In the YouTube video above, a fireworks show in West Palm Beach was filmed by Jos Stiglingh using a DJI Phantom 2 and a GoPro Hero 3 silver. The music is Con Te Partiro, by Andrea Bocelli.

The second video, below, was uploaded to Vimeo by a user named Gaspar C. It too uses a DJI Phantom and a GoPro. The song you hear is Sprawl II by Arcade Fire.
