Oh WOW!


Twinkling city lights, raging wildfires and colorful auroras are lit up in new dazzling nighttime views of the Earth.
The new images released Wednesday are courtesy of a newly launched NASA-NOAA satellite thatís equipped with a sensor to observe the planet at night.

3. Probably the tar sands operations and surrounding man camps.

Also notice the off shore rigs in the gulf near NOLA.

2. Ahh, the relative solitude of the west...

I love still being able to get outside the city and see the sky at night unobscured by all the city lights
