A major public event was held in perfect weather conditions. Because of this, many of the attendees were greatly disappointed. Why?

Was the weather perfect for organizers of the event? For spectators? For participants?
Was it a sports event?
Did it take place in spring? summer? autumn? winter?
The perfect weather: hot sunny day? Snowy sunny day? Rainy day?
Was the event held at night?

Just noticed our equal post counts above :-)

Did the event involve fireworks? Fire show? Lights show?
Was the weather cloudy? Was there an astronomical phenomenon?

In binary, we had 12 and 14 posts, respectively. That was your 15th, and this will be my 13th. Silly LTPF WTF.

Did the event involve fireworks? yes Fire show? Lights show? only inasmuch as these are elements of a fireworks show
Was the weather cloudy? no Was there an astronomical phenomenon? no

Did the weather change during the show? Was it an unusually cold night?
Did the "perfectness" of the weather concern temperature? visibility? wind?
Are weather extremities, as hurricanes, relevant?
Were the attendees disappointment before the fireworks started? During fireworks show? After fireworks finished?

Was the 'perfect' condition thought to be lack of wind? Lots of wind?

Did the lack/excess of wind cause the fireworks to fly in different directions or patterns than expected?

Did the weather conditions cause the fireworks to be less spectacular than expected? Because they didn't scatter properly? Because they couldn't see properly? Was there too much sunlight to do them justice?

But the audience couldn't see properly. Was there too much sunlight to do them justice? no, it was adequately dark.

Haha, yes, I meant to refer to the audience of course. Did the rockets travel too far? Did something block the audience's view when there was no wind?

Smoke? yes Something made out of fabric? no Pollution? technically yes

***** SPOILER *****

When Wellington had their public fireworks display this year, the air was perfectly still. As a result, the fireworks left a pall of black smoke behind them that did not dissipate, and grew larger and larger as the display continued. Those watching the display from afar saw progressively less of the display, and eventually nothing at all.


Nice quick one. Well done Jondahr for the solve.
