It is a 24 hour
observation of all of the large aircraft flights in the world,
condensed down to about 1 minute. From space we look like
a bee hive of activity.
You could tell it was summer time in the north by the sun's
footprint over the planet. You could see that it didn't quite
set in the extreme north and it didn't quite rise in the extreme
south. I have never seen this before. We are taught about
the earths tilt and how it causes summer and winter and have
had to imagine just what is going on. With this 24 hour observation
of aircraft travel on the earth's surface we get to see the
daylight pattern move as well.
