Texas at night

Scott Kelly's tweet:  "Good morning #Texas from the #ISS.  Looks like #Houston and #Austin have some #weather headed your way. #YearInSpace"

The lines of lights connecting the cities are roads.

The city lights are so intense they even shine through the cloud layer.


1. How did Scott know it was morning?
