Capture the stunning satellite imagery of the earth in this magnificent photograph. Closer inspection of this map of the earth shows the lights of people's homes and businesses in populated areas of the world. Notice how the industrialized nations of the world and the coastlines of other continents are illuminated by the amount of lights. One can see the more uninhabited or non-developed parts of the world clearly. Many parts of Africa are dark, as they have little technology. In Australia, it is primarily the eastern coast that is occupied, with a large portion of the continent being desolate. In North America, there are lights everywhere, even deep into Canada. The earth starts to get darker in the colder, sparsely populated areas of northern Canada, Alaska, Greenland, Newfoundland, etc.
