Not what you may be thinking. A friend sent me this website address and I thought some of you might like it. I think it is beautiful as well as amazing. One of the benefits of space stations.. .http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/image/0011/earthlights_dmsp_big.jpg

It's a shame it's not so beautiful when you touch down. I'd really like to see the I-Max footage that's been shot on some of the recent Shuttle missions. I'm told it's breath taking. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Smile]" src="smile.gif" />

How bright does a light have to be to be visible from space - obviously the more you have the better the chance but you get the idea of the question.

If you look very closely, you can see me outside my house shining my Mag-lite at the satellite taking this picture! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Smile]" src="smile.gif" /> . .. .For anyone so interested, the movie "For All Mankind" is worth watching. It was assembled from all the NASA footage shot between '68 and '72 from the public archives.. .. .It was good on the big screen, can't vouch for it on video.
