This is how pilots confirm their route in the 3D space.

Visually, lights standing high up from ground form a path for pilots to follow. The red flashing lights we see at night against the sky, when view from above, form some sort of zodiac for pilots and direct them to destination. It’s interesting to think about cities as nods of light flow. Could Boston be the North Star for pilots?
