It's just a small interactive version hf one of his creations. It's not a game, rather closer to a model.

Use the second meter to place where you are located in the world. Notice how moving the slider, moves the line on the globe.

Drag the first meter to the top. The very top, you'll notice the starting animation. Now you could actually watch the thing for a full 24 hours, or move the slider slowly down to increase time.

yahoo answer.


Imagine a pendulum at the North (or South) Pole. As the pendulum swings the Earth rotates underneath it so that the pendulum appears to be itself rotating. This effect is seen everywhere on Earth, except the Equator, in lesser degrees.


Hope this helps,
