Worldview is a new interactive night-view.  A great way to find places with dark night skies, big cities, and whatnot.  A great way to quickly understand how Australia is laid out.

Cool. Looks like Israel and Egypt never turn off their lights! Nile River route is about the biggest, contiguous, most-dense strip of them all.

The Nile valley is incredibly densely populated.  

But take a look at Syria.  The lights have gone out.  

You can see a lot of the India-Pakistan border.  It's a string of lights running through nowhere.  The whole thing is fenced and lighted.  

The lights do a lot to explain why Portugal is a distinct country.  I wonder why Galicia (north of Portugal, and where the local language is more like Portuguese than Spanish) belongs to Spain.  

You can tell that Maui is becoming pretty developed.
