The ocean tides observed from the space.
This video was made in 1997, or before, by the NASA Physical Oceanography Distributed Active Archive Center, at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology.
It makes it possible to visualize all the tide waves of the planet Earth, at the same time, as they usually progress.
On the video, you shall see that there is not two bulges, each moving from a meridian to the successive one, westbound. One always near the sublunar line, and the other one near the opposite line.
Compare with the classic representation.
The video is also presented with a more detailed comment.
