    Thanks to John Burgeson for the tip on the Astronomy Picture of the Day
    composite photo showing the lights around the world. I'll try to use it in
    class next week.

    Regarding this photo, Jonathan Clarke made a comment that the
    International Space Station is not just a Boeing product or a US
    project. However, to set the record straight, John and Jonathan, if one
    goes to the APOD address cited at the bottom left of this photo, the
    correct origin of this picture is the DMSP (Defense Meteorological
    Satellites Program) satellite and not the ISS.

    Thanks again for the address of this photo.
