Let

(where t ε ℝ) and let μ be the G-invariant probability measure on G/Γ. We show that if x is a non-periodic point of the flow given by the (ut)-action on G/Γ then the (ut)-orbit of x is uniformly distributed with respect to μ; that is, if Ω is an open subset whose boundary has zero measure, and l is the Lebesque measure on ℝ then, as T→∞, converges to μ(Ω).
