An amazing Satellite picture

31 Oct

Could you make out anything from this amazing photo? Certainly, it is a satellite image of earth.  The brighter parts of the image is of course the view of certain prominent cities which were illuminated in the night.  More importantly we could also find a thicker orange colored line across this image. 

The stunning image of the earth, taken from Expedition 28 International Space Station Crew during August 2011.

The orange line which is snaking for hundreds of miles across the earth’s surface, is a land border between two countries and the countries are India and Pakistan. Yes, the image shows the illuminated (flood-lighted)border between India and Pakistan. India has undertaken a massive work of fencing and floodlighting this border.
