See where you live from the satellites perspective.

One picture is my true south satellite G28 and the other is G18.
From this perspectice amazing that I get any signal from G18.
You can just see the southern tip of Lake Michigan, where I live near.

Hi, nice pictures but maybe a little misleading as the dark area is simply the night.

I easily receive G18 from central Florida and Florida is completely in the dark; however, if you look close you can see some of the city lights.

Also notice how you can see South America in the dark.

Later, DC

Yes, Misleading. This is most likely a computer generated simulation of what it might look like from the satellite and at the time of day or night you request the view.

The line between night and day is called the Terminator and that is what the crew of Apollo 13 set their cross hairs to for the return correction burn
