WATCH: Fireworks kick off new year across San Antonio

KSAT 12′s Sarah Spivery shared video of the aftermath of fireworks.

SAN ANTONIO – San Antonians celebrated the new year with a boom! Many shared videos of fireworks being popped across the Alamo City.

David Pequeno shared a different view of the fireworks during the New Year’s Eve celebrations in San Antonio.

A drone with Avid Season Productions captured all the fireworks near the Tower of America, as well as the neighborhoods behind the Alamodome.

A similar sight could be seen in other San Antonio communities.

Mac Jones captured video from 32 floors above the Grand Hyatt San Antonio River Walk.

He said he could see the same sights play out all around him.

His video, along with many others, are being shared on social media.

KSAT 12′s Sarah Spivey also shared a video of the aftermath of fireworks.

The video shows smoke particles trapped at the surface of the atmosphere.

Although it doesn’t happen often, Spivey said the atmospheric conditions were just right on New Year’s Eve.

San Antonians have set off so many fireworks that haze has developed around the city! Smoke particles get trapped at the surface of the atmosphere 🤯🎆 This happens every now and then on NYE when atmospheric conditions are right. Happy New Year!
