WATCH Drone Captures Sydney New Year's Fireworks

Sydney was among the first to celebrate New Year's 2015 and its spectacular fireworks display was caught on video for the first time by a drone at 1,000 feet.

The eye-popping images take you inside what has become one of the world's most elaborate New Year's fireworks displays -- all taking place over Sydney Harbor.

"We are going to have drones flying around above the fireworks giving live broadcast as these amazing fireworks go off on our bridge, on our Opera House and of course on our barges," Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore said, according to the Australian Broadcasting Corp. "Those images will be beamed to a billion people around the world."
