This is Amazing

This is amazing. It shows 24 hours of air traffic for the whole globe. Each dot is a flight. You can see the typical transoceanic routes used, etc. Play it a few times, look very closely and you can see the day/night boundary moving and how the intensity of the flights increases during daylight around the world. Statistics show more than 21,000 heavy transport airplanes flying
world wide and just under 60,000 flights per day world wide. I don’t know
how they do this, but it is impressive.
