TR reader and newshound billb sent along link to this picture and an e-mail from a friend of his that's really worth a look. I'll let billb's friend explain what you're seeing:
Panorama of World from new space station last November evening.Fascinating stuff.
A sight to behold----near-perfect clarity, no obscuring atmospherics.
Lights clearly indicate the populated areas.
You can scroll East-West and North-South.
***Note that Canada's population is almost exclusively along U.S. border.
***Moving east to Europe, there is high population concentration along Mediterranean Coast. It's easy to spot London, Paris, Stockholm, Vienna.
***Check out the development of Israel compared to the Arab countries.
***Note Nile River and the rest of the "Dark Continent". After the Nile, the lights don't come on again until Johannesburg S.A.
***Look at the Australian Outback and the Trans-Siberian Rail Route.
***Moving east, the most striking observation is difference between North and South Korea. Note the density of Japan.
