The Earth, at Night.  Yes, that's a photo (shhhh, they're sleeping).

NASA astronaut Chris Cassidy, an Expedition 36 flight engineer, uses a 400mm lens on a digital still camera to photograph the Earth roughly 250 miles below him. The Cupola is an ESA-built observatory module of the International Space Station (ISS). The Cupola’s 31 inch window is the largest ever used in space.

City Lights Illuminate the Nile    NASA image acquired October 13, 2012    The Nile River Valley and Delta comprise less than 5 percent of Egypt’s land area, but provide a home to roughly 97 percent of the country’s population. Nothing makes the location of human population clearer than the lights illuminating the valley and delta at night.

"NGC 3603 also contains some of the most massive stars known. These huge stars live fast and die young, burning through their hydrogen fuel quickly and ultimately ending their lives in supernova explosions."
