‘Mystery City’ Revealed By ISS Time-Lapse Video Turns Out To Be Enormous Oil Field

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on November 16, 2011


Internet forums exploded after an astonishing time-lapse video of the Earth taken from the International Space Station revealed more that was first thought – a mystery city that ‘shouldn’t have existed’.

The dramatic video displays the Earth illuminated by the green glow of the Aurora Borealis, and cities represented as bright spots of electric lights.

Taken by the crew of the ISS between August and October 2011, the clip was an immediate online hit.

The strange collection of lights in North Dakota, USA, appeared to be equivalent in size to cities as large as Calgary and Minneapolis, but seemed impossible to identify.
