Montreal From Space

This is a pretty cool picture of Montreal from space (really 600km from the ground) courtesy of NASA. It's always cool to see these kind of things...


“This astronaut photograph of the city lights of Montreal illustrates the extent of urbanization,” the website explains. “Major roadways and industrial areas are traced by bright white lighting, while the adjacent residential and commercial lands are characterized by more diffuse yellow-gold lighting. Rivers and other water bodies appear black, while the surrounding countryside is faintly illuminated by moonlight. Blurry areas at image top and bottom right are caused by cloud cover.”
