Oh carp. That should be "Eery." I hate not being able to edit my titles

Very interesting and beautiful.
The North Atlantic corridor of flights doesn't show up brighter is because the flights are spread out more horizontally. They have to be separated laterally by 60 nautical miles – 1 degree of latitude.

For an excellent view of North American flight paths,
check out the appropriate episode of the new Discovery
Documentary 'North America'.
A superb work. I believe the second ep includes the
NA flight path video.

Yep, "eerie" is correct.
I need to trust my writing instincts, then. I looked at it, thought, "wait
that's the lake
" and googled "eery," which showed up as the word I intended. Now I see that's merely an alternative spelling. So I was correct before I was incorrect, but even being incorrect, I was correct. A win-win!
Okay, back to the discussion of the cool map

D'oh! Stupid alternate spellings!
"Erie" is the lake and the city.
