One of the functions I like in the in-flight maps is the one that shows where the sun is up and where it’s down. Well, thanks to the incredibly simple sunflight.net, you can tell if the sun is going to be out on your flight before you get on the plane. All you do is input your city pairs, the flight date, your departure time, how long the flight will be, and voila: out pops a map like the one above. (I inputted YYZ-LAX departing at 6:30pm).
Why is this important? It’s not, really; it’s just interesting. But I guess you could make a case that it is important for a number of reasons. From this information, for example, you can determine…
- If should you bring an eye mask (here’s a good one)
- If you should bring sunscreen
- If you should get a window seat or not
