Earth at night

Quote:
Scientists unveiled today an unprecedented new look at our planet at night. A global composite image, constructed using cloud-free night images from a new NASA and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) satellite, shows the glow of natural and human-built phenomena across the planet in greater detail than ever before.

Cropping would cause a loss of part of the image. You'd be better off letting Windows just scale it IMO.

Impressive.
I can pick up the Australian capital cities but the extreme emissions from central Western Australia is very puzzling. It's pretty rugged territory with quite a bit of mining going on but it's lit up like a Christmas tree

Most lights seem to be in northern India and in Belgium - they illuminate all highways at night. Not sure what's going on in northern India. Mabe they have low electricity rates.
