24 hours of the worlds air traffic.

Did you ever think that there were this many aeroplanes in the sky at one time?

This is amazing: you'd never realize just how many scheduled aircraft flights are in the skies at one time.

This video shows a 24 hour period. You'll see daylight moving from east to west, and each little yellow dot representing an aircraft in flight. It's fascinating to watch as daytime flights escalate and decline at night.

Thanks to Denny May for the interesting video.
