North Korea Appears Like a Black Hole in a Sea
North Korea Appears Like a Black Hole in a SeaNorth Korea appears like a black hole in a sea of light in this remarkable NASA satellite image taken of the isolated communist state.
Taken at night on January 30 from the International Space Station (ISS) this picture shows North Korea almost completely devoid of lights.
In stark contrast to the south of the image South Korea is shown bathed in light as is China to the north both clearly visible bustling with energy.
North Korea - which is ruled by supreme leader Kim Jong-un - is almost completely black appearing to show a distinct lack of power or energy supply.
The only exception is the country's capital Pyongyang to the south east of the nation which is illuminated by city lights.
However the rest of the country - which has a population of 24 million - is pitch black looking almost like a sea between South Korea and China.
