This intriguing "globular cluster of stars" is actually the "constellation" of city lights surrounding London as recorded February 2003 from the International Space Station. The encircling "London Orbital" highway by-pass, the M25, is easiest to pick out south of the city. Even farther south are the lights of Gatwick airport and just inside the western (left hand) stretch of the Orbital is Heathrow. Image courtesy of NASA.
