Posted By: <b>Perspective</b><p>The image is a panoramic view of the world from the new space station. It is an absolutely awesome picture of the Earth taken from the Boeing built Space Station last November on a perfect night with no obscuring atmospheric conditions.<BR>It is a night photo with the lights clearly indicating the populated areas. You can scroll East-West and North-South.<BR>Note that Canada's population is almost exclusively along the U.S. border. <BR>Moving east to Europe, there is a high population concentration along the Mediterranean Coast. It's easy to spot London, Paris, Stockholm and Vienna.<BR>Note the Nile River and the rest of Africa. After the Nile, the lights don't come on again until Johannesburg. Look at the Australian Outback and the Trans-Siberian Rail Route. Moving east, the most striking observation is the difference between North and South Korea. Note the density of Japan.<BR>Kinda put's it in perspective...<BR><BR><BR><BR><BR><BR><img src="http://www.redrat.net/blackhole/_imagez/earthlights1.jpg">
