A Mysterious Patch Of Light

A Mysterious Patch Of Light | Chris' Regional Geography | Scoop.it
If you are up in space looking down on America west of the Mississippi, one of the brightest patches of light at night is on the Great Plains in North Dakota. It's not a city, not a town, not a military installation.

Via Seth Dixon
chris tobin's insight:

I guessed that the bright light was a large oil drilling site since it really is a big business right now.  The people who live here are happy about being able to make money, but their land is being destroyed by the drilling sites made.  The landscape is changing dramatically and many people are moving here for work.

Use google earth and you can compare the two images.

that's an excellent idea, especially to have students suggest what the light might be in the photo. The question is , is the bright light a one time occurrence or does it continue?J

I'm having trouble installing GoogleEarth on my iMac. Looking forward to the comparison. Big adjustment after years in the PC world.

Oil Found In Australia Puts US in Possible #1 Position in the world

chris tobin's insight:

EIN News link about new oil found in Australia that puts the US in a #1 oil position instead of the Arabs......fracking the area (like in Virginia) and also fracking with large amounts of money to do it are currently problems.
