Who has seen the image of the Earth from space, at night? The latest edition is here.

Here's a clipping I've just made, of Australia.

Australia at night

Click on it or here for the really weird bit ) There's no-one in the centre of Australia. That is - there's almost no-one. According to Wikipedia, almost 75% of all Australians live in the cities or coastal areas.

That ain't the big lit-up bit on the left.

NASA are claiming it's wildfires, but here's a look at the area or somewhere similar:

You'd have a lot of trouble getting that lot to stay alight, let alone to show the sort of light that's in the photo.

So...

Did NASA make a boo boo of epic proportions (to us, anyway), or is that where the secret Boat People camps are, or is it a US Military secret like 100 Pine Gaps except bigger?
