Turn your bloody lights off!

Manchester from the International Space Station last night.
Liverpool and the Wirral
Liverpool and the Wirral (you can see my Dad's house from here).
Some place down south.

Is it any bloody wonder we can only see a handful of stars these days?

Postscript, 20:23: I just showed my Dad the middle photo, and, when we zoomed in, we really could see his house!

  1. I was going to say the same - we used to live on the Isle of Dogs, facing across to the Cutty Sark. It was a position my wife affectionately described as "the bottom of the U-bend", which is very obviously upside-down in that photo.

    I'm struggling to zoom in to a degree that I could make out an individual house, but our old flat must be on there somewhere.
