Caption: Australia at night. Satellite image of the Earth at night, centred over Australia. City lights (yellow) show areas of dense population. Large, densely populated areas are found in Japan and China (top) and Southeast Asia (upper left). Most of central Australia is uninhabited, as is the Antarctic (bottom). This image was produced by combining data from the Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP) and NOAA's POES satellites.
