European Panorama at Night (NASA, International Space Station, 01/22/12)

Editor's note: I LOVED coming in to this fantabulous image this morning. What a scene the crew has captured! Posted to the NASA Views Earth at Night photoset:


With hardware from the Earth-orbiting International Space Station appearing in the near foreground, a night time European panorama reveals city lights from Belgium and the Netherlands at bottom center, the British Isles partially obscured by solar array panels at left, the North Sea at left center, and Scandinavia at right center beneath the end effector of the Space Station Remote Manipulator System or Canadarm2.
