Caption: The Americas at night. Satellite image of the Earth at night, centred on the Galapagos Islands, off the coast of Ecuador in South America (lower right). City lights (yellow) show areas of dense population, particularly in North America (upper centre). Most of South America (lower right) is uninhabited, as is the Arctic (top). This image was produced by combining data from the Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP) and NOAA's POES satellites.
