Artist Cai Guo-Qiang lit up the Doha, Qatar horizon last week with an explosive event that shot rainbow-colored gunpowder into the desert sky near the Arab Museum of Modern Art.

These gorgeous paint-filled explosions lit up the already bright desert, and brought some much needed color and flair. The daytime fireworks push the boundaries of fireworks, specifically when they can be done. What makes the fireworks themselves so unique is that they were gunpowder filled with paint, and after being set off as you can see in the video the colors seem to hover in mid-air.

It's amazing to see how beautiful these explosions can be, especially during the middle of the day. The colors will surely catch any viewers attention in an instant.
