World Air Traffic 24 Hour Period

    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
