CANBERRA, Australia — Exploding fireworks sprayed from the sails of the Sydney Opera House and the Australian city’s harbor bridge at midnight tonight as the world ushered in a new year.

More than 1 million people crammed the Sydney Harbor foreshore on a warm summer night to watch the pyrotechnics show that appeared to live up to its billing as the most extravagant of Sydney’s already renowned annual display. Dubai will later try to create the world’s largest fireworks show to ring in 2014. Revelers heading to New York City’s Times Square could expect the annual ball drop, the hefty police presence but no mayor this year. The new year will instead be rung in by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor.
