    Yes, but partly also because the US have the most population concentrated on the east coast, whereas in mexico its concentrated around the centre...

    Yeah. Those lights are probably the rigs out in the gulf. The bit of land lights sticking out into the gulf in the middle are the mouth of the Mississippi river.

    True.. It appears that the frame is from east Texas on the left to the Florida peninsula on the right looking north from above the gulf.

    Nope, take a look again. The video starts over southern Mexico with Mexico City the 1st bright light on the left and the Yucutan peninsula on the right. Lotta dark space down there.

    The aurora borealis are sure cool looking.

    I had seen the video on NASA's youtube channel before I saw the still photo. Had my mind set on how lite up the US was and Mexicio was not. I do have a few brain cells firing at the correct frequency, not a lot but a few. lol
