Every day, between two and three thousand flights traverse the North Atlantic on journeys from North America to Europe, or back again.

Have you ever wondered how they all make it without getting tangled in each other?

Following their stunning time-lapse of European flight paths, air traffic control service NATS released a video condensing all its flights from one day in July into a single two-minute clip.

Watch in awe as hundreds of planes follow their predetermined "tracks" across the ocean, in a pattern so complex it looks like the little blue bulbs are dancing over each other in the sky.

Oh, the glory of flight. And the glory of the people who organize it for us!
