    Wow, what a rush that must be. Can you imagine? I’m trying.

    Unbelievable – ie, should not be believed.

    Look carefully at the night pictures – there are at least four clues indicating that these are not photos.

    Can you find them?

    • Thanks for your input, Dick. You’re partially right. They are photos but I checked the source and the following information was provided:
      “Although these images do accurately depict the landforms described and the positioning of the lighted cities to the right of the day-night terminator line, they don’t represent an actual Earth one might see from space. The photograph[s] are digital composites formed by merging multiple images from different sources (probably satellites).”

I'd love to hear from you!
