New Year will arrive a second late when time across the globe is adjusted to account
for the changes in the Earth's rotation. That extra second will make 2008 – already
long with an extra day on Feb 29 – the longest year since 1992.

This 10ft ice sculpture in Skelmersdale, Lancashire, was created by cars splashing in puddles at the side

Kent, England: A green heron, native to north and central America, was
spotted on West Hythe's royal military canal last weekend. The bird, which
has not been seen in the UK since 2005, is believed to have been blown
across the Atlantic while migrating along the east coast of North America.

The Queen Mary 2 sails near the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor to meet the QE2.
