Every late November one of the mundane paths through an unnamed park turns into a symphony of light, color, happy kids and exciting puppies for about a week.

And if you are a statistics/spatial geek like me, it gets even better: NASA has kindly provided the full data set, measured to 1GB, up for absolutely free download!
