This photo of London was taken by an astronaut onboard the International Space Station, giving us an amazing view of what the city looks like when you're far, far away from it and not sitting in a car in one of those stringy bits of light.

If you'd like to look back up at the man on the ISS, it'll shortly be very clearly visible in the evenings here, should you live somewhere where the sort of light pollution pictured above doesn't spoil your chances of seeing anything smaller than the moon. The Virtual Astronomy Twitter feed will let you know when the IIS is overhead. [Daily Mail]
