I'm guessing that this is the right place for this post.
As some may know, tomorrow night at this time (9:00pm Shanghai time, you do the math for your respective time zones), this whole country is going to light up like a firestorm. I've managed to live through about 9 years of the Chinese New Year, seeing the fireworks, firecrackers, fire-all sorts of things, go up and sometimes down, and igniting this whole country. In the small community that I've spent many a CNY, the whole place is brighter than noon, from about 9 to about 1am.
My question is... what does this whole phenomenon look like from space? From what I hear, the Great Wall isn't visible from space (but the Great Firewall probably is). But I'm willing to bet, when a country of 1.3 billion goes out and lights all sorts of pyrotechnics up, all in the same night, that MUST BE visible from space.
Any pics? Or as for tomorrow, might there be?
I'll be in Shanghai lighting my share of pyro-fun funs! Maybe that'll show up?
