Everything in yellow is an aircraft............. It is a 24 hour observation
of all of the large aircraft flights in the world, condensed down to about 2
minutes.. From space we look like a bee hive of activity. You could 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. At the beginning of the clip watch all of the
traffic from the US heading for Europe over night and then all of the traffic
coming back to the US during the day.
