    Hello Mike. This was a great space ride with the great narration by Dr. Wilkinson. This is truly amazing to see the earth, the city lights, the lightning, and even the Progress supply ship re-entry into our atmosphere. Thanks for sharing this nice video with us, and best of regards.

    Very impressive and yet at the same time very disheartening. If you look closely at the passages over the U.S. there are very few places within hundreds of miles of any population centers where the sky must be truly dark any longer. Given that the glow from strong light pollutions sources can be detected over great distances, this implies that those few places that remain truly dark in the future will only be in regions all but inaccessible, or so hostile, that virtually no observer will be able, or wish, to visit them.

    Actually, I've gotten the very same impression on a number of transcontinental commercial flights over the U.S. at night. No matter what section of the country I'm above, light sources are usually evident in all directions to the horizon when the sky is clear and in numbers far beyond what one might anticipate. Cities like Chicago, St. Louis, and New York are plainly indicated out the window by their sky glow hundreds of miles distant from the aircraft at 35,000 feet.
