Lol I know I could barely find it. Is it the little dot under where it says "Atlanta"? Or is that Pensacola?

My first thought was how much brighter South Florida was compared to all the other areas!

I don't think it takes up a bigger portion of the state than others, rather I'm surprised how compact it is, especially considering it's the most prosperous area in the state.

Very cool pic either way, thanks for sharing

Pensacola isn't shown, but the place where Panama City should be is mysteriously dark.

I think trees probably affect it some, since most of what you see is light reflected off the streets. North Florida definitely has more tree canopy over the streets compared to south Florida.

Torlando > Orlampa. We could always do Tamplando.

Yeah South Florida is brighter for real, but also appears brighter for the reason southernnature listed. The density also means more lights packed into a gridded style compared to Tampa and Orlando's sprawling, every which way style of development.
