Earth Rotation - YouTube

Created in C4D as a test of the Proximal Shader.
Maire412's insight:

Great video for showing the rotation of Earth and how day changes to night.  Although it is silent and 3 minutes long, watching the lights "turn on" will keep kids' attention.  From an energy standpoint, I do wish it showed a better view of North America and Europe so that students could get a better understanding of how much energy we waste.  However, North America still lights up pretty well in this video.
