We present a new method for displaying light in flight. Fresnel holograms are recorded directly on a CCD sensor, electronically stored, and numerically reconstructed. Experimental results are shown. From different parts of a single holographic recording, different views of a wave front can be reconstructed. This means that the temporal evolution of a wave front can be observed by numerical methods.
