Caption

Europe at night. Satellite image of city lights at night, centred on Europe. North is at top, with the uninhabited dark of the Arctic at upper left. Bright areas mark dense urban populations, and the European coastline is clearly seen. Dense groups of cities are seen in England, Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium, and northern Italy. Paris and Madrid are also easily identified. Moscow is at centre right. Cairo and the Nile are at lower right, along with Israel. Oil rig lights are seen in the North Sea. Other lights include Iceland (upper left) and western Siberia (upper right). Desert areas, oceans, and inland seas are dark. For this area in the day, see E070 560.
