What are you doing on New Year's Eve? If you're like most people, New Year's Eve takes place close to home, where you know your family is staying off the roads, but still having fun.
One way to have fun is watching people around the world celebrate New Year's Eve. You know there will be huge celebrations in places like New York City, where the Times Square ball drop is just part of the fun.
There will be fireworks, tons of confetti fluttering through the air, and a million or so people braving the cold temperatures. They'll jump around in their funny 2017 glasses and make lots of noise.
You can be part of that, and many other New Year's Eve celebrations, right from the comfort of your own smartphone. For the 21st year in a row, EarthCam will live stream the Times Square ball dropping at midnight, captured from multiple webcams.
That includes the ball dropping, signifying the end of 2016 and the beginning of 2017. Note: The EarthCam app is free, but you can make in-app purchases, each for between $0.99 and $4.99.
