A light show featuring 1,000 drones was staged over the Pearl River in Guangzhou on Saturday night, 4 November, making up spectacular formations and lighting up the sky.

With the theme of "at the occasion of the 90th anniversary, SCNU forges ahead on a new journey", the drones flew over the Pearl River and formed a series of images and Chinese characters in the night sky, narrating the story and history of 90 years while extending the deepest wishes to this 90-year-old university.
