Thanks for posting this and reminding me.

This is proof enough for me that there are obviously aliens in our solar system.

Great pictures. Look at all those light-bulbs!

To much light pollution, especially around London.

3 out of the 4 of your pics (links) are of the U.S.
Are you implying that we Americans are the darkside?

Something is really wrong with the picture of Australia.

We're coastal people generally yet for some reason a whole section of desert in Western Australia seems to be powered like cities????

I wonder if that is an error.

Amazing... You can see where civilization thrive best! And if you want to hit earth from space, just follow the light..

Somewhere deep in the universe there are alien conspiracy theorists looking at earth through a telescope and arguing about what is causing the white glowing spots.

Awesome



I had This image minus the North and South pole areas printed out to make a large 3' x 5' High-Res laminated wall poster. That linked image doesn't do the final printed quality justice. Oh and I also got just as large High-Rez images printed and laminated of Saturn, the moon and Mars.

I'm weird that way.

I love this stuff.

What's not explained that I've read elsewhere about images such as these is that the images take into account time lapsed compilations of things such as automobile headlamps on roads and highways, camp fires and street lamps as well.

Hope that helps.

Still makes no sense for this much light. It's desert.

That is interesting.
I can only speak to the one I linked and the explanation given for it.

Brush fires?
Clouds?
China setting up shop whilst others drink beer and surf?

Yeh, it's probably China. Just as long as they don't take our Beer and BBQs.

I think it must be an error because comparing to Google Maps there just isn't any sort of civilisation that could produce that much lighting.

I wonder if they're fake?

They all look fake to me.
Like some sort of digital reproduction of some sort.
Why on Earth would the Earth be blue where not "lit"?

Supposedly taken on some Moonless night, no doubt. LoL.
They appear decidedly cartoonish and yes, I would say the "error" in Australia probably isn't the only one.

They are the wildfires, Australian desert is always full of them. These pictures included wildfires too, not just city lights.
