Nice! Just curious, are the rocket cores top-lit? The purple/fuschia stars are intense :)

Nice! Future questions on a few of your comps, but a little concerned that you apparently almost torched your chicken coop with slow-burners still afire when the met earth again?? Yipes :+}

Thank you! Bottom lit. I love the sound as they slowly spool up.

Thank you. The fuschia, green, and orange are part of the Veline system of colors that Ned Gorski modified to use phenolic resin as a binder. The blue is AP/Copper Benzoate. The glitter is D1.

Would you mind sharing your rocket fuel formula?
