Any international readers interested in North Korea would probably come across at least once this famous photo of Korean peninsula [1] from NASA demonstrating a stark difference in the light emission of two Koreas at nighttime. NASA finally updated a new satellite image [2] and it is ‘even more dramatic than the monochrome NASA satellite image of old', writes North Korea Tech blog [3]. The blog also introduces a video version of the image [4] which shows North Korea in context with the rest of East Asia.
