Good morning #FromEarth Iowa, in the midwestern United States, is the vibrantly lit patch about 1/3 from the bottom and left of this picture taken from the International Space Station on September 29, 2011. A significant percentage of the state's energy is produced by wind and other renewable sources. Areas captured in this picture include from the top clockwise, Chicago, Illinois under a dark Lake Michigan; the dark Appalachian Mountains with the eastern seaboard just beyond; St. Louis, Missouri; Omaha, Nebraska; Des Moines, Iowa; Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota. And, of course, the natural light from the aurora borealis over Canada, framing the horizon.
