      Curiosa la distorsión generada.

      Madrid parece estar más al norte en lugar de en todo el centro de la península. O tal vez es que no se ve la cornisa cantábrica.

      ...y así el hombre fue capaz de dibujar con luz los perfiles de la tierra...
      Cuánto poder y tan poca conciencia.
      Cuánta belleza esperando a servir para algo
      hasta que el mismo hombre pudo fotografiarla.

      Many will have noticed the distortion. Dimensions in the foreground appear larger than those farther away. The distance Gibraltar to Sevilla (the brightest city in the lower part of the photo) is 70 miles and looks almost larger than the distance from Madrid to the Atlantic coast in the north which is 170 miles and more than twice that.

      E' triste vedere come l'Inquinamento luminoso che c'è in Italia c'è in poche altre parti del mondo.

      It's very sad to see that the light-pollution in other places in the world there isn't so much as in Italy.

      That image is not good for such comparisons. The first night shots of Italy posted on this site, taken at obviously similar conditions (distance, exposure) are quite like the above one.
      If you want to see really brilliant night shots, taken during the same orbit, within 2 minutes, for your light pollution study (my support is with you!!) have a look here:
      Spain at night:
      Northern Italy at night:
      Not so much difference (unfortunately), you will see!

      Gracias por la información sobre los puntos verdes. Iba a preguntar, cuando he visto la nota aclaratoria.

      Thanks for the info on the green dots. Going to ask, when I saw the disclaimer.
