In San Diego, 20,000 fireworks were launched from four barges in San Diego Bay and from a pier for the Independence Day fireworks show.
But the whole fireworks accidentally went off five minutes before the show was supposed to begin.
And the Fourth of July fireworks show that was supposed to last for 17 minutes, lasted in only 15 seconds in very loud booms.
Here are wonderful photos of the celebrations from the NBC San Diego.

I think that fireworks are very beautiful but they can be very dangerous and bad for us too.
It caused air pollution, wasting our money and can cause fire.
Here are some videos of the incident:

The Shard is the tallest building in London and in the European Union.
The 95 stories skyscraper is 1,017 feet tall.
The tower will be inaugurated by His Excellency Sheikh Hamad Bin Jassem Bin Jabor Al Thani, Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs of the State of Qatar and Prince Andrew Albert Edward, the Duke of York.
The State of Qatar is the majority investor of The Shard.
It was reported that during the event, lasers are to light up the night sky, beaming across town to touch several landmarks, the London Eye, the Gherkin, Tower Bridge.
It is going to be very beautiful!

Speaking to reporters on Thursday, the architect, Renzo Piano, said he wanted to make sure this building wouldn’t be seen as a symbol of arrogance and a display of power. More of a ‘sparkling, gentle spire,’ he said. Jonathan Brady/European Pressphoto Agency.
