Today’s Image of the Day from NASA Earth Observatory features a nighttime view of Turin in northwestern Italy.

The city is home to many automotive manufacturing plants, and has been chosen as a test site for autonomous driving vehicles.

The lights of Turin trace the roads that connect the city center to the mountain valleys of the Italian Alps. 

The image was captured by an astronaut onboard the International Space Station (ISS).
