Check out this “Earth at Night” image. Is that cool or what? (Click on it three times to enlarge it.)
Notice how the U.S. population noticeably decreases west of the Mississippi. Them there mountains done got in the way, I guess. :)
And it’s interesting how population (well, population with electric light) concentrates on the coasts — in Europe and Florida, especially — like white lace on a blue dress. Oh, and look at the white line along the Nile. That’s to be expected, I guess, but it’s interesting to see it so obviously.
And check out how bright Taiwan and Japan are. Those are some lit-up populated islands. Wow.
Pretty cool. But now, back to grading…
