An amazing gallery of earth images. Looks like Christmas lights in the snow. But they are also depressing. Those lights also represent, loss of space for wildlife, diminished overall resources, rampant destruction of trees and waterways, overpopulation, loss of nighttime skies, depletion of ocean fishes, and runaway greenhouse effects. Some say, we're going through another "mass extinction", which, if true, means that even man will be cut down to a few hundred, just like last time.
The photo below is a view of the sunset from space — a sentence almost as awesome as the picture itself. Kimiya notes that he’s had numerous views in space that were so beautiful as to leave him speechless, a feeling we can perfectly understand having seen these photos.
