Default Night View of Florida from Space Station

I love seeing our world from this perspective. It looks like Florida has plenty of room for growth.

I love Florida. Seeing it like this shows us that our state's shape is 3/4 due to natural boundaries unlike most states which are mainly imaginary boundaries with maybe only one coast. I don't know if that makes sense to anybody else, but there is a feeling I get when see our state sticking out like an arrow into the Caribbean and I say to myself, "I'm home." Plus look at those lights, I love our cities and Orlampa is clearly beginning to take shape (if we could just do something about that corny name then I welcome it).

Not even urban infill and vertical growth, something that would in the long run preserve the natural beauty of the state?

I mean we don't need to keep building over all of the land. There is enough covering the state now.

Let's build smart and preserve our natural beauty. Improve the areas we already developed and keep the greenspace green.

Architect that is a beautiful sight, I can hope that in my lifetime I would have the opportunity to see that firsthand. A man can dream.

Torlando? Hehe . And yes soon Orlando and Tampa will become one metro area, that will be pretty cool. And South Florida looks huge from space, it takes up a much bigger portion of the state than you would expect!

I can't believe how lit up Fort Mysery and Cape Coma are.... Pretty bright. I wonder if there are closer night pics?
