Artist Aaron Koblin has created this fantastic and hypnotic animation of flight patterns over the U.S. Try to look without becoming mesmerized!
From the artist's site:
"This work was originally developed as a series of experiments for the project "Celestial Mechanics" by colleagues Scott Hessels and Gabriel Dunne at UCLA. FAA data was parsed and plotted using the Processing programming environment. The frames were composited with Adobe After Effects and/or Maya."
