You have seen the awe-inspiring revolving globe drone show at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. Now, watch hundreds of drones take off and ascended toward the night sky like stunning shooting stars in this new behind-the-scenes video.

The dazzling drone light show during the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games was one of the best moments of the Opening Ceremony on Friday.

A fleet of 1,824 Intel Shooting Star 3 drones took to the sky above the Olympic Stadium to form a complex set of geometrical shapes before transitioning into the blue-and-white checkered emblem of Tokyo 2020. Symbolizing the global solidarity and unity in diversity that the Olympic Games represent, the LED-equipped drones then reassembled to form a giant 3D model of the world, giving many a moment of hope amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

Now, a new behind-the-scenes video shows how this iconic, emotional moment was created.
