    It's realy nice.
    Did you notice where the lights were very few ot even not existing, for example in Africa, Australia, north Canada, etc...
    And where it's very intensive, Western Europe, USA, ...

    -Japan is covered with lights.
    -There is light along the Nile, in Egypt, it's strange I don't know why.
    -Some countries in Africa, have no lights appearing.

    It's realy amazing.

    Haha, Norway and Sweden sorta look like a giant lit-up penis!

    What a great practical joke that would make:

    "Okay, everyone turn on your lights... NOW!"

    Those aliens must be so confused

    does the world really need that many lights, considering its day in part of the world?
    This has been a public service announcement from GOD.

    That looks very cool. The reason there are so many lights around the Nile is because thats where all the buildings are, you dont build your cities AWAY from the main water source :P

    Curious... it looks as if the entire world is at dusk. It also doesn't seem like the picture was taken all at one time (read: earth = round, picture = flat, square)

    I wonder how that was taken...

    >I wonder how that was taken...

    it's a conspiracy! the government is trying to convince us that we're using too much light, and should stop.. this is because they want all the energy for themselves.. they need to to power their giant evil robot slaves.

    The end is near... You have been warned.

    uh.. anyway.. neat picture.
