London Lights

March 27, 2008

Recognize this intriguing globular cluster of stars? It’s actually the constellation of city lights surrounding London  (recorded by the International Space Station, February 2003). The fuzziness around the peripheries is caused by either thin, low clouds or perhaps fog.

The lights seen in this image especially the energy supplied to them is causing untold environmental damage to our planet . . . but its so pretty!


After posting this I went to Open City at Somerset House, and what should be the image used on one of the leaflets . . .
