Urban Picture

Great picture by Chris Hadfield (NASA) showing the bright lights of Cairo and hundreds of smaller cities along the Nile river. The lights on the northeast show of Gaza, Tel-Aviv and Jerusalem.

Showing Cairo and villages in the Nile river valley (and Alexandria at the coast of the Mediterranen). The lights in Israel are from Tel Aviv (Gaza is too faint), further inland is Jerusalem while the brightest spot just before the deserts is Jordan's capital Amman.
