The sky might be full of fireworks celebrating Bonfire Night here, but over in Thailand the sky was lit up with lights of a different kind.

Thousands of paper lanterns were released up into the sky over the Thai city of Chiang Mai for a spectacular lantern festival.

The event takes place when there’s a full moon in the twelfth month of the traditional Thai year. It marks the end of the rainy season and the start of winter.

How spectacular does it look!
