BostonGlobe.com will provide a livestream of the Boston Pops show and fireworks display at 8 p.m.

That time of year has rolled around again, when you hear those distant booms, think they’re thunder — and then realize that somewhere, somebody is enjoying the brilliant hues of a fireworks display. And you’re not.

Never fear. We’ve got you covered.

Here’s a list of the fireworks display permits on file with the state fire marshal’s office. The list has been updated as of Friday. (Send us your video of a show, if you take one in.)

It’s not just a Fourth of July thing. And not just a Boston thing. The Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular begins at 8 p.m. July 4, with pyrotechnics at 10:30 p.m. But there are other fireworks shows around the state through the summer.
