Hello - Planet Earth
Created for Earth Day 2015 Above the Clouds is billed as a 'real-time interactive cinematic experience celebrating the Earth'. In truth it isn't really real-time (apart from the fact that you actually watch it in real time) and there is very little interactivity.
However Above the Clouds is very cinematic. The site uses a WebGL globe with text from Carl Sagan and music from Sean Beeson to present a tour of this planet we call home. There really isn't much interactivity so you might as well just sit back and enjoy the experience as the 3d globe zooms in on some amazing satellite views of the Earth.
