Re: Earth Image



Fire
I saw some light foto of Europe once.
On that i saw  a complete black Spain and France,
exept for a few city`s.(Paris ,Madrid)
In these country`s are strickt rules about lost light that can go up.This
beacause of the tellescope`s in the mountans
between these country`s.
On this picture i expected to see city`s like
Amsterdam or Eindhoven (philips,a lot of light No joke!!)
But to my big surprize the north of the Netherlands
seemed to be lit!
And in fact it is,beacause one can find gas and oil there,
they burn of the bad stuff,and those big fire`s can be seen
on the Northsee (out of the dutch coast )aswel.
Maybe that`s wat`s on the picture ,FANTASTIC i might add,in Alaska.
