Earth at Night 2012 | Educating in a digital world |
This site not only allows you to look at the lights across the earth at night, but also to drill down to specific areas, and to see a map image and then overlay the night view.
This map is a great way to explore population across the world. What do the night lights tell us?
According to the website the images were taken over nine days in April 2012 and thirteen days in October 2012. To get the clarity required took 312 orbits. For more information check out the website.
