That was awesome! It was cool to see how the flight activity increased across europe and the U.S. east coast with the sunrise.

Thanks for sharing!

Amazing video! If you look closely...you can follow the TA and TP lon-haul routes with typical flight times for that route. E.g leaving at morning arriving at night and visa versa

Thanks for that, that is something to see. Like a swarm of bees.

Very cool video. The SYD-JNB is a very lonely route compared to the North Atlantic!
Thanks for sharing!

It's amazing how much traffic is in Europe... it makes sense though.

Alot of those flights in the USA that are overnight movements are cargo companies like FX and UPS, etc. That's what is amazing to me as well. Great link!

Looks funny! Thank you for sharing!

Star Alliance is offering on their website a screen saver showing "real time" movements of their aircrafts.

I prefer the Star Alliance screensaver, it only shows their flights, but the different airlines are represented by different colours. Also the time of day is shown and the number of flights.
You can download it from their website

I really like the STAR screensaver where you can follow the movments of one carrier. I think that's more interesting.

Pretty amazing that you can almost count the aircraft flying in South America/Africa/Australasia whereas the US, Europe and Asia are just a swarm!

The Hawaiian Islands stand out quite heavily with the streams to and from the US mainland and what appears to be Japan.

Anyone sehe aircraft that streak across the poles like shooting stars?

Yep! I found the EWR-SIN flight, too, based on departure time from the NorthEast!

The most amazing thing to me is that while Europe's traffic increases quite quickly when the sun rises, it's INSTANT in the United States east coast. It's just incredible!

And now imagine how this looked on 9/11 and 9/12 2001. The large yellow swarm above the USA was gone these days.

Noo need for the sly remarks. What's wrong with him saying he's proud of where he's from?

Around you proud of your country?

Wow, that's right! You can idenfity the swarm of activity between local midnight and sunrise in the Ohio Valley (as best as you can at that resolution): Memphis, Louisville, Dayton, Indianapolis. Very cool.

Yes! It's as if the warming sun activates the hive... Striking.

Awesome to see how at American Eastern Night Time a huge mass of planes go toward Europe, and then at their day time all of them come in a bigger mass!

Scary thing the lone flights traveling between South America and JNB!!!

Thanks!

Really an amazing video.

But I can't believe it shows all flights.. in the morning hours, there are only ten flights or so over Western Europe; there must be more than that!
