The video below is really cool, although it resembles a bunch of glow-in-the-dark ants crawling around until you realize what it really is. The video is actually a timelapse depicting a day in the life of Washington, D.C.’s Metro system.

The video shows Metrorail, Metrobus and D.C. Circulator activity on a weekday, spanning a 24-hour period beginning and ending at 4 a.m. It’s cool because you can see the systems and the region slowly come to life, achieve a recognizable form and slowly fade away.
