Pyrotechnic Extravaganza: Spectacular video of Sydney’s New Year fireworks

Rydney’s skyline erupted with tons of exploding fireworks as more than a million revellers cheered in the new year from the city’s crammed harbour shores in the world’s first major celebration for the start of 2013. Sydney’s balmy summer night was split by seven tons of fireworks fired from roof tops and barges, many cascading from the centrepiece, Sydney Harbour Bridge, in a 6.6 million Australian dollar (6.9 million US dollar) pyrotechnic extravaganza billed by organisers as the world’s largest. The enthusiastic farewell to 2012 will soon continue on a grand scale across Asia. Celebrations were planned around the world, with hundreds of thousands expected to fill Times Square in New York City to watch the drop of a Waterford crystal-studded ball.
