NASA Astronaut Don Pettit assembled a sequence of several of the most striking images of city lights at night taken by several astronauts on board the International Space Station between 2002 and 2008 into an animated "world tour" of cities at night. Resolutions approach an estimated 10 meters/pixel in the sharpest images. This video, produced entirely by Pettit, takes you on a quick trip comparing cities from different regions, all viewed from the International Space Station.
