In the hours leading up to the New Year, I scoffed at the news reports of celebrations around the globe. Essentially, the TV channels were reporting the fact that the world continues to turn on its axis and orbit the earth.
However, a day later I found myself tweeting precisely the same fact.
Many other people were similarly struck by the dawn. I have compiled a Storify of some of the other photos, using the Capsules tool from Teleportd to discover good ones.
