The death of North Korea's leader, Kim Jong Il, serves as a reminder that the hard-line communist country has long been in the dark — literally. A white border highlights the dark spot known as North Korea in this visualization of our planet's city lights.


Wow what a vast differrence in NKorea and its neighbors. Nice visual perspective of what is going on over there in its industry and people. Hope one day they can come out of the darkeness and become part of the global community, and some of its mass starvation can stop.

The whole picture of the world at night is a rather beautiful, and telling image.



North Korea isn't the only place in the dark. It does stand out amongst it's neighbours though, the east coast of China, Japan and South Korea. All very modern countries.

The contrast between the countries is amazing! I imagined more lights throughout the world, but this tells alot. Put things into perspective that not all nations are like ours.
