The sprawling city of Los Angeles is hard to capture in a single image, even from space. Disneyland is the bright cluster of lights at the bottom-right-hand side of this image.

Hugging Tokyo Bay, the city of Tokyo is home to 13.2 million people. Tokyo looks different from most other cities at night: Its lights glowing a cooler blue-green, because they use mercury-vapor lighting, as opposed to the sodium-vapor lights used in most of the rest of the world, which glow slightly orange.

The orange blotches on the left hand side are gas flares from the Zubayr oil fields. Flaring at oil fields is usually done to get rid of gas too expensive to capture, but a major effort is underway to reduce the flaring here. Zubayr is the illuminated area nearest to the flares; the bright area near the center of the image is Kuwait City.
