I just ran across this and thought it was pretty cool, so i thought I would share it.

This is a 24 hour observation of all of the large aircraft flights in the world, condensed down to 1:11.

What you will see, is a video showing air traffic around the world for 24 hours, taken from a satellite. The yellow dots are airplanes in the sky during a 24 hour period. Stay with the picture. You will see the light of the day moving from the east to the west, as the Earth spins on its axis. Also you will see the aircraft flow of traffic leaving the North American continent and traveling at night to arrive in the UK in the morning. Then you will see the flow changing, leaving the UK in the morning and flying to the American continent in daylight

Read More if you wish

Day is over Australia when the video starts, Enjoy!

Thats awesome! In a industrial sort of way ..haha.

A question i have is, why is there so much air traffic between US cities and not as much between European cities?

Or maybe it just looks that way because the US is smaller.

My thinking was that more people in Europe take longer car rides instead of traveling by air?
