French - Italian Border At NightOn this amazing image you can see city lights at night along the France-Italy border. It was photographed by an Expedition 23 crew member in the International Space Station (ISS). The brightly lit metropolitan areas of Torino, Lyon and Marseille stand out amidst numerous smaller urban areas in this dramatic photograph. The sea is ont the top of the image and Alps (not shown) are down. The full moon reflects brightly on the water surface. That and many more details make this image amazing.
