Here is a mesmerizing, real-time animation of the winds across the United States and their complicated patterns. So much of our interaction with the wind is what we feel, or see in short distance. It’s neat to step back a little in awe of how they change and morph into visual spectacles.
From its creators, Martin Wattenberg and Fernanda Viegas:
An invisible, ancient source of energy surrounds us—energy that powered the first explorations of the world, and that may be a key to the future.
This map shows you the delicate tracery of wind flowing over the US right now.
