Kansas City, Mo., was ablaze with excitement following the Chiefs’ Super Bowl win on Sunday – and the celebrations were so festive, they even showed up on weather radar.

On Sunday evening, the National Weather Service (NWS) Kansas City took to Twitter to show what Kansas City looked like “erupting in celebration, as detected by our radar!” In the post, fireworks can clearly be seen growing increasingly bigger and brighter.
