The flow of air traffic

Now that I am a frequent flyer, I think it’s interesting to observe the world’s air traffic.  This satellite video shows air traffic around the world for a 24-hour period in 2008 (condensed into one minute).  Notice how the heaviest concentrations of flights occur where there is daylight and how flights disperse from these hubs during the night.  The flow of air traffic from North America to Europe and back in this video illustrates how we follow the light.
