Caption: Eurasia at night from space. Colour-coded image, based on satellite data, of Eurasia at night. North is at top. Seen here are Europe (centre left), Asia (right) and North Africa (lower left). In this image, city lights appear yellow, flares from oil production areas are red and burning vegetation is purple. Most of the light comes from cities. Europe and India (at bottom right) are the most heavily populated regions. The data for this picture was produced as a mosaic of images from the American Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP) spacecraft.
