Talk about signaling the outer space we are here. While our cities are so well lighted we often are surprised to find there's no star sky above us, from space, the Earth looks like it's Christmas every night.


“Nighttime light is the most interesting data that I’ve had a chance to work with,” confessed Chris Elvidge, with the Earth Observation Group at NOAA’s National Geophysical Data Center. “I’m always amazed at what city light images show us about human activity.”
