Image of Earth Lights
EARTH'S CITY LIGHTS: This image represents a series of images stitched together to show Earth’s city lights—this could never be just one snapshot since half of the Earth is in daylight at any given time! It reveals how cities tend to grow along coastlines and transportation networks, and offers us a glimpse at the extent of urbanization we’ve rendered onto our home planet.
