    AUCKLAND, New Zealand (CBS/RTV/TVNZ) -- Auckland, New Zealand was the first major city in the world to usher in the New Year on Tuesday (January 1). The celebrations began with a fireworks display atop the Auckland Sky Tower, in the center of the city.

    The pyrotechnics fired from two levels of the 1076 feet Sky Tower, which is said to be the tallest structure in the southern hemisphere.

    According to local media, there was concern that bad weather would hamper the fireworks, but it cleared in time for the display.
