24 Hours of World Air Traffic in 1 Minute

Check out this time-lapse view from space of all the large aircraft flights around the world during a 24-hour period

This video tracks (in yellow) all the major airplane activity occurring around the world over 24 hours, in just over one minute. Note how crazy-busy the air space over the United States and all of Europe is both night and day (see how the shadow of night crosses the map).
