Night-time lights from urban centres are visible from Norway to Morocco. The bright light sources that can be seen in the Norwegian Sea and North Sea are from oil and gas platforms. Numerous ship trails are evident over the North Atlantic Ocean. Lee waves and cloud streets obscure much of the United Kingdom and Ireland.
