Space photos of the day: Earth from above

Image 4 of 17


Seoul, South Korea is featured in this digital image photographed by an Expedition 10 crewmember on the International Space Station (ISS). This photograph illustrates the Seoul (originally known as Hanyang) urban area at night. Major roadways and river courses (such as the Han River) are clearly outlined by street lights, while the brightest lights indicate the downtown urban core (center of image) and large industrial complexes. Very dark regions in the image are mountains or large bodies of water.
