The city of brotherly love was the backdrop for an amazing sky show this week. The choreography of 150 drones lit up the sky with a variety of images and messages for Healthcare and Essential Workers.

The show was developed by Verge Aero, based out of The University of Pennsylvania’s Pennovation Works Campus. They were set up on Franklin Field and flew over the city with coordination by a specialized computer program.

Here are some highlights of the show. See their video below.

This was part of the #PhillyShinesBlue and #LightItBlue campaigns. The flight path was primarily over The Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, The Children’s Hospital of Pennsylvania. But it was seen far beyond that with the enjoyment of first responders and anyone else lucky to be in view.

According to Pennovation Works:
“The show was planned to ensure maximum visibility for those inside the hospital and allow them to view the show while maintaining social distance,” says Verge Aero CEO Nils Thorjussen. He added, “This was an opportunity for us to donate our resources and expertise to stand in solidarity with these brave heroes, and convey the thanks of the American people. We are profoundly grateful for their tireless work, dedication, and sacrifice.”
