    Both videos are very interesting thanks for posting I enjoyed watching them.

      Hi Jo-Anne,
      I’m really glad that you enjoyed watching them, we have had so much devastation here in OZ, that I thought something totally different needed to be posted.

    The second one reminded me so much of a book I used to have in the Fifties. It had paintings of similar scenes; obviously, the artist only had scant information and his own imagination to rely on. But, they were so like the photographic images portrayed.

    Thanks magsx2. I thought the first video was better than the second.

    Both videos are amazing. I’ve always liked city lights from above when you’re in a plane for example. It’s funny how you can “see” the continents too, just by the lights of the cities.

    Thanks for reporting about the floods too, we get very little information here in Europe and it’s nice to have an insider’s perspective.

      Hi Elchico,
      Yes you can see the outline of every continent very clearly. It is nice looking down on the city lights from a plane.

      Your welcome, I realize when your in a different Country it’s very hard to know where to get some information. We have a lot of people living here from all walks of life, and no doubt people would of been concerned for Family and Friends.

    Both videos are amazing, each for its own reasons. I find that seeing cities lit up all over the world reminds me how many people there are, and how many things must be going on that I know nothing about. A little perspective, I guess. And I liked watching the Earthrise in the second video, but seeing the planet disappear below the Moon’s horizon was a little unsettling, although I don’t know why. Thanks for posting these.

      Hi bronxboy55,
      Glad you liked the video’s.
      “seeing the planet disappear below the Moon’s horizon was a little unsettling”
      It might be because we are used to seeing the Moon rise and fall, but looking at the Earth doing the same thing, it’s like watching our Planet just disappear into nowhere.

      Probably something about watching our one and only home (so far) disappear.

    Awesome vids, Mags. Thanks.

    What a damn shame when you look at the Korean peninsula.

    • magsx2 says:

      Hi bingbing,
      You really need more lights there in the Korean peninsula, it looked a bit like shattered glass, more lights would make it look a lot better, you’ll have to talk to the powers that be about that.

      Thanks for the links, I found the one in the Telegraph rather interesting, as well as a bit strange, believe it or not I haven’t been to Longreach yet but it is on the “to do” list. More for the Dinosaur trail, but the lights would be the icing on the cake.
