In 2012 after months of tests I was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome. I'm 46 and suddenly life makes sense. I don't mean to offend with my comments so please tell me if I do so I can put it right.

New Years celebrations always start out in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. With respect to me here in California, New Zealanders are living in the future ;-) ... UTC/GMT+12. Not sure why the prime meridian (0 degrees) and the international date line (mostly 180 degrees) are defined to be different. I'm guessing to prevent confusion in Europe since you *always* switch days when you jump across the dateline.

Great to see the series of Photos like this and thank you Bob for organising it!

Look forward to better weather for this weeks repeat attempt!

Weather forecast for me looks good, but, there's enough time for all of that to change!

Thanks for organizing this Bob, I had fun. I'm still working on the full-res HDR pano, it has really been an interesting challenge. I found the limits of lots of tools. I finally found a way to render the panos in perfect registration at different exposures, but each file is about 1.7GB. Takes about 9 hours to render the set, and I goofed up a color setting so have to restart.

BTW, not trying to be a wet blanket here, but I *think* the day starts at 00:00 GMT, the first sunset of the day happens in the GMT timezone, then each subsequent location should be the next point east.
