Huge oil fields visible from space at night

Cool pix. You can  pick out the interstate highways by tracing the visible towns that are in a line.

Another view of Eagle Ford is at Eagle Ford Shale. It’s not larger than either Houston or Dallas-Forth Worth.  The field is narrower but much more extended than either of those metro areas. Check out Have You Seen the Eagle Ford From Space?
