Southeast Asia at night, satellite image

Southeast Asia at night. Satellite image of the Earth seen at 18:00 (6pm) GMT (UCT), centred on China. City lights (yellow) show areas of dense population, particularly in India (left), China (upper centre) and Japan (upper right). Most of Australia (lower right) is uninhabited, as is the Arctic (top). Image obtained using data from Landsat 5 and Landsat 7 satellites

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases Southeast Asia at night, revealing the stunning beauty of our planet from a satellite's perspective. The image, taken at 18:00 GMT (UCT), focuses on China as its center point and provides a mesmerizing view of the region's city lights. These luminous yellow dots represent areas with dense populations, notably India to the left, China in the upper center, and Japan in the upper right. As we explore this snapshot further, it becomes evident that vast portions of Australia (lower right) remain uninhabited while the Arctic (top) also lacks human presence. This visual contrast highlights how population distribution varies across different regions of our globe. The data used to create this extraordinary image was collected by Landsat 5 and Landsat 7 satellites. By combining their observations, scientists have gained valuable insights into various aspects such as meteorology, demographics, urbanization trends, and environmental impacts. Moreover, this photograph prompts reflection on humanity's relationship with light pollution and energy consumption. While cities shine brightly like beacons in the night sky due to their high population density and urban development, sparsely populated areas remain cloaked in darkness. In essence, this remarkable portrayal captures both Earth's geographical diversity and human influence on its surface. It serves as a reminder of our interconnectedness within Southeast Asia but also globally – an awe-inspiring testament to our ever-evolving world.
