    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Chris Hovey says the Chabot Space and Science Center in Oakland, California, hosts its annual New Year's Eve Balloon Drop to coincide with the clock striking midnight at GMT.

    "It's an exciting atmosphere as all of the children are eager to pop the balloons and the parents elbow for camera positions," Hovey, who's attended the balloon drop twice, told CNN. "When the balloons come down it's bedlam."
