    I know! But it sure does look cool from space.

    Yeah, but I imagine it would look just as cool with more efficient, more directed lighting. Plus, just think how much better our view of the stars would be.

    It's a shame they're quite small and grainy. They're amazing as they are but properly done - I don't think I'd change my desktop picture ever again.

    It makes the Earth seem so small...just one little globe flickering with our lights here and there. Beautiful photos.

    If you want those pesky lights gone, you can go to North Korea. There is a pic similar to these that shows Asia at night. North Korea is virtually dark while South Korea and Japan are pretty much totally lit up.

    The OP also reminds me of this... ;)

    ^ That was too cute!

    You should! It's gorgeous and so is the drive to get there. I got a bit sentimental at that particular photo. I drove all over that state with e.

    Great photos! Although it's trivial, it's a cool thought that the moonshine gets reflected by the water, whether you're standing at a lakeshore or watching from space :)
