Caption: Africa at night, satellite image. City lights (yellow) show areas of dense population, particularly in Europe and the Middle East (top). There are few lights in Africa since most of it is uninhabited desert. This image was produced by combining data from the Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP) and NOAA's POES satellites.
