This is a quote from the First Sunrise of the New Millennium page from the US Naval Observatory:
"The first populated land where the Sun will rise in the new millennium (and at the beginning of any other year) is at Kahuitara Point (44° 16' S 176° 9' W) on Pitt Island in the Chatham Islands, a dependency of New Zealand. The Sun will rise there at 16:04 (12/31) UT or 4:49 AM local time."However, a chart at timeanddate.com says that daylight savings time (DST) is in effect in the Chatham Islands, so that 16:04 UT is 5:49 DST the next morning on Pitt Island. For me in San Francisco, it is 8:04 on the morning of New Year's eve.
I am taking part in the Millennium Peace Crystal event on the Chatham Island.

Peace? Peace is to be at the Noint Joint, between thought waves. Meanwhile, see other Year 2000 links, that may or may not be valid after Jan 1, 2000. Also, Altar graphics. And, a millennium art exhibit.
