Much of London and its suburbs are visible in this photograph taken from the International Space Station. Two of the characteristics that stand out at night are the progressively denser concentrations of lights and the change from yellower to whiter lights as you move towards the commercial centre of the city.
The central zone, known as the City of London, lies on the meandering River Thames, as it has for centuries. The dark river basin runs west to east through the city and widens downstream as it heads toward the sea. Several bridges cross the river, the brightest being Tower Bridge.
Major open spaces are black in this city known for its profusion of parks. One of the largest is the famous Hyde Park in London’s West End. Other open spaces are college campuses, cemeteries, and golf courses. The best-known parts of the city include the political zone—Whitehall and Parliament—that lies just outside the brightest zone.
