    World air traffic over 24 hours



    The yellow dots are aircraft.

    It is a 24 hour observation of all of the large aircraft flights in the world, condensed down to about 2 minutes. You can tell it was summer
    time in the north by the sun's footprint over the planet.
    You could see that it didn't quite set in the extreme north and it didn't quite rise in
    the extreme south.

    Notice that as evening approaches, the traffic is predominantly from the US to Europe and when daylight comes, the traffic switches and it
    is predominantly from Europe to the US.
    The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing

    That is amazingly beautiful! Who would not want to be 'out there' looking down on that? Not that we could see the little yellow dots...but you know what I mean...
