The ball that is lowered on Times Square during the New Year`s Eve countdown is 6 feet in diameter and weighs 500 pounds. It consists of a fog machine, a 10,000-watt xenon lamp, 12,000 3/4-inch silver rhinestones, 180 75-watt halogen lamps, 144 xenon glitter strobes, 320 one-inch light emitting ventilation holes–and a fan to cool all the lamps.
