Caption by Space Station Academy student: This photo is taken at night time off the coast of Acapulco, Mexico. There are lights representing the different cities in the area and areas of darkness where there aren't many residents. Off to the right side of the photo (south), there are bright white lights representing a thunder and lightning storm. This view from space of how a populated area looks is fascinating to me. I also love how a small portion if the ISS is included in the picture.
