24 Hours of World Air Traffic (Video)

This time-lapse animation of the world's air traffic for 24 hours is an absolutely amazing visualization. It's interesting to me to see how the traffic ebbs and flows according to the time of day. As well, I was intrigued by the flow of international flights of Europe during the day vs. the United States during the day. Europe appears to me to have a larger center of focus—probably due to their closer proximity to Asia and Africa than the United States.
