North America at night

North America at night, satellite image. North is at top. Yellow lights mark the major cities. The western coast of the USA is the most brightly lit area, with the urban area of Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle and Vancouver (in Canada), all seen. The eastern USA is densely populated and has many major cities. The American Mid-West, which lies between these other two areas, is sparsely populated, with large stretches of plains, deserts and mountains seen as dark areas. The far north is uninhabited, apart from the lights of Alaska (top left). The Pacific Ocean is also dark. Dawn is breaking over the eastern coast of the USA

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the stunning view of North America at night, as captured by a satellite image. With the northern part of the continent positioned at the top, one can observe an array of yellow lights illuminating major cities across this vast land. The western coast of the United States stands out as a brightly lit region, with urban areas like Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, and even Vancouver in Canada clearly visible. In contrast to the densely populated eastern USA with its multitude of bustling cities, lies the sparsely inhabited American Mid-West. This expansive area is characterized by dark stretches representing plains, deserts, and mountains that create a stark visual contrast. As we venture further northward on this image, we encounter Alaska's solitary lights shining amidst uninhabited terrain. The Pacific Ocean appears dark while dawn slowly breaks over the eastern coast of America. This photograph not only captures human civilization's footprint on Earth but also serves as a testament to technological advancements in earth observation from space. It highlights both our ability to illuminate vast metropolises and our recognition that there are still untouched regions awaiting exploration. The Science Photo Library has masterfully captured this breathtaking snapshot showcasing North America's diverse landscapes illuminated under twilight skies and morning light—a true celebration of life on our magnificent continent.
