      Interactive web site allows you to easily visualize Earth's wind patterns

      It's easy to pick out the swirling storm systems and also gives you an idea of the trade winds near the equator -- the winds typically blow "backwards" down there, moving from east to west!

      If you like this map, also be sure to check out hint.fm/wind, which shows a similar map for the United States and you can zoom closer here.



      Enjoy!
