I was doing some reading over the weekend when I came across a cool article from NASA with pictures and discussion about viewing cities across the world from space…at night. The article is a few years old but there are lots of cool pictures. Of course, I’m mostly focused on Las Vegas (photo above).
The “Vegas Strip” of casinos and hotels—reputed to be the brightest spot on Earth—stands out in the center of this image due to both its brightness and its diversity of light colors.
This isn’t anything that’s news to people that frequent Las Vegas, but this is a unique view of Las Vegas and I wanted to share that. I’m assuming that the giant green dot of light that stands out at the bottom of the photo is the light beam that shoots out of the Luxor. Pretty cool.
If you’re a world traveller the entire article is worth a glimpse, if only for the pictures.
