More than 1 million people crammed the Sydney Harbor foreshore on a warm summer night to watch Sydney's renowned annual pyrotechnics show, which appeared to live up to its billing as the city's most extravagant. Fireworks launched from four sails of the Sydney Opera House for the first time in more than a decade.
Dubai will later try to create the world's largest fireworks show to ring in 2014.
CBSNews.com will be live streaming New Year’s celebrations from around the world. You can watch them all here.
