OLogy: Views from Windows

Take a personal look at how the height and velocity of your vantage point can affect the view.

Look out your bedroom window. What do you see? How would that same scene look from the window of a speeding car, or from an airplane window as you travel higher and higher into the sky? Would your view of the world be the same from each of the different windows?
