There are links to a very pretty animation at the bottom of the ESRF page. They're big....it'll take 100,000,000 years to wait for it to play in the browser. It was quicker to save it and play it on the machine. It's a lot of space to take up on a drive, but the last part of the animation is pretty neat....
