24-hour Time Lapse Video of Air Traffic Around the World

Here’s a fascinating video showing air traffic around the world for 24 hours, but condensed down to just over a minute.

The yellow dots zipping around the video are simulating airplanes in-flight during a 24 hour period. As you view the video, you’ll notice the light of the day moving from the east to the west, as the earth spins on its axis.

As a Hawaii-nerd, I find it interesting to watch those yellow dots flying to and from Hawaii — islands that are just little specks out on the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Oh, how cool would it be to be on one of those flights right now?!
