Flying over glowing cities

Timelapse video of a cross country flight at night, flying above clouds glowing with city lights. My advice to you is to make the video full screen, put in your headphones and enjoy the soothing ride. (via migurski)

This is so beautiful. I flew from New York to California during June of 1990 on an evening flight. I was mesmerized by the patches of dark and then the cities that would light up from below. I remember Las Vegas really standing out, and when we landed in Los Angeles it seemed to be even brighter. The music is so soothing. Enjoy!
