Dark Side Of The Earth

Anyone who visits this hidden corner of the web more than occasionally, will know that we love space stories, and that our biggest regret is that the race to space stopped with the moon landings. Even so, amazing images are beamed to us almost very day.

Dark-Side Of The Earth - Taken By The Suomi Satellite

...... is the night side of the Earth, as taken on a series of cloudless nights ..... its fantastic.

Strangely (or perhaps not, if you live in this weather benighted country), you will notice that the only landmass where they couldn't get a cloudless night this year, is Britain and Eire, where band of cloud runs from Brittany in France, across the UK and into the North Sea ..... they had to publish a second, separate picture for this  northern rain centre.
