Workers prepare to test the new time ball and its 9,576 LED's in New York

Workers prepare to test the new time ball, which will be used over Times Square to mark the beginning of the new year, and its 9,576 LED's, in New York, December 30, 2007. The first time ball was installed atop England's Royal Observatory at Greenwich in 1833 and at 1 pm each day it would fall so captains of ships could set their navigation equipment. The time ball, which signifies the changing of the calender year, will celebrate its 100th anniversary in New York this year. REUTERS/Chip East (UNITED STATES)
