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

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

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