Mindboggling NASA Shots Of Miami From Space, At Night

Taken by NASA on November 24th, 2011, these are night two shots of Florida. Actually, this is ALL of Florida. Miami, of course, is the most brightly lit part, in the lower right. Orlando is up around the center, Tampa/St. Petersburg next door, Jacksonville up a little, and Naples down a little. They all look rather like blobs. That is, except for the big Miami/South Florida megalopolis. That really looks like itself. The rather clearly defined eastern and western edges are the Atlantic ocean and the Everglades. In the middle is us.
