<p>A particle system technique to model, render, and animate realistic fireworks displays is presented. The attributes of the fireworks display that the particle system models are color, brightness, shape, trial, size, particle dynamics, blinking, mousing, star effect, spinning, and elasticity. A rendering engine that consists of various modules which individually handle a particular property of the particle is described.</p>
