This is a 24 hour observation of all of the large aircraft flights in the world, condensed down to 1:11. From space we look like a beehive of activity. 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.Pretty cool, eh?
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.

World Air Traffic
My father sent me an interesting video and I thought I would share.
