The city of #Ankara at night

Ankara by night

Today’s Image of the Day from NASA Earth Observatory features a nighttime view of Ankara, the capital city of Turkey.

Ankara is the center of the Turkish Government, and a diverse tourist attraction.

A sophisticated network of highways and railways encompasses the city center, where the unique shape of the Atatürk Mausoleum stands out.

In the photo, the white light of industrial areas contrasts with the bright orange lights of residential areas.

The image was captured on March 25, 2020 by an astronaut onboard the International Space Station
