This is definitely awesome: new photos from NASA showing Earth at night from space. This one is the Nile.

There was a piece on the front page of the BBC yesterday. The photos are gorgeous!

So cool. Think that's Israel on the right or is it just the angle?

Try googling NASA HD earth photos or something. I just found this one attached to a BBC article.

http://visibleearth.nasa.gov/

I'm not sure which gallery these are in or if they are up yet.

Edit: here is at least some of then, but they may release more.

http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/NPP/n ... night.html

2012 Black Marble

Another one: http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/Features/IntotheBlack/

Scroll to the very bottom. There is a definitely awesome photo of the southern lights illuminating an ice sheet. Gorgeous!

I showed a couple of these to my classes yesterday. They weren't impressed or interested.
