Hey, it matters to us humans! A new year, a new start, new goals, dreams, desires, and most of all, hope. Hope that the year ahead will be as good as or better than the one before. The new year is pretty astronomically insignificant though. The Sun orbits the Earth in 365.25 days. We’re just in a different place in space!
I really need to start doing this some day. As you watch the night time movements, remember that the stars are not moving, but the Earth is in fact turning with the camera (and all of us) on it. Feel the motion of the Earth. Also there’s a mind-shredding guitar solo near the end. And have a safe and Happy New Year’s Eve!
