Video: Time-lapsed 24 hour air traffic

This is a great video showing the air traffic throughout the world over a 24 hour period.

One thing to note from the video is that the Earth is a sphere, so on this rectangular map the planes very far North/South appear to move much faster because they are travelling a shorter distance than those at the equator.
