    I saw this and was surprised how populated the east half of the US compared to the west half.

    Awesome!

    No idea what all those lights in central western Australia are though. They must be mining operations or something, because nobody lives there.

    It almost looks like there's an imaginary dividing line down the middle of the US.

    Wow. That's oddly beautiful despite the fact that we're looking at light that's generally considered pollution.

    What's that lit up place way way up at the top of Alaska?

    That's Prudhoe Bay, oil gets drilled for there, it's the northern end of the Alaska Pipeline.

    These are awesome photos!

    I hear ranching is big in the outback, probably a bunch of sheep farms.

    Yes. It's the light from the enormous wildfires there.
