Today’s Image of the Day comes from the NASA Earth Observatory and features a look at the southwestern portion of the United States at night.

Visible in the photo are city lights from Los Angeles, Phoenix, San Francisco, Salt Lake City, and Portland. The gray area just above Salt Lake City are the Bonneville Salt Flats.

This image was captured by an astronaut on board the International Space Station.
