A NASA satellite captured a spectacular photo of what is now Hurricane Isaac from space, a nighttime view showing the then-tropical storm's clouds lit up by moonlight as it approached the U.S. Gulf Coast. NASA's Suomi-NPP weather tracking satellite recorded the...photo of Isaac just after midnight on Tuesday (Aug. 28). The bright city lights of New Orleans, Houston and Tampa, Fla., can be easily identified...also...cities all along the Gulf Coast, Florida and the southeast U.S. coast.

The Earth at Night - Nothing demonstrates population and wealth like the warm glow of cheap electricity from space. Also, check out the Russian equivalent of manifest destiny...not quite as comprehensive as the American version, but then California is a lot nicer than Siberia.

I can't look at the stars They make me wonder where you are Stars, up on heaven's boulevard And if I know you at all, I know you've gone too far
