Caption: Japan at night from space. Colour-coded satellite image of Japan (at centre) at night. North is at top. Korea (at lower left), China (at far left) and Russia (at upper left) are also seen. In this image city lights appear yellow and light from squid-fishing fleets is light green. Most of the light comes from the cities. The squid fishing fleets use lights to attract the squid. The data for this picture was produced as a mosaic of images from the American Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP) spacecraft.
