Will you be awake to watch the New Year’s Eve ball drop in Times Square Tuesday night? If not, let’s take a look at what you’ll be missing. The New Year’s Eve ball is 12 feet in diameter, weighs 11,875 pounds and has 288 new Waterford Crystal triangles.

According to the Times Square Official Website:

The Times Square ball is illuminated by 32,256 Philips LED (light emitting diodes) lights. Each LED module contains 48 Philips LEDs – 12 red, 12 blue, 12 green, and 12 white for a total of 8,064 of each color. By mixing these four colors, the ball is capable of creating a palette of more than 16 million vibrant colors atop One Times Square.

As seen on New Year’s Eve past, the ball descends 77 feet over the course of a minute to a screaming crown in Times Square. A crowd that has grown five times in size over the past few decades.
