    Las Vegas Is One Bright Hole Straight to Hell [​IMG] By Eric LimerParis may be the City of Light, but the City of Sin is looking to give it a run for its money.This pair of shots was tumblr'd (tumbled?) and tweeted by Colonel Chris Hadfield, who's currently up on the ISS.At night, the city looks like some pool of molten metal, scalding the desert's surface, burning a hole straight to hell. And maybe that'snot too far from the truth. [Col.

    Hey mlkmn, I've driven to and thru Vegas (on my way to Reno) a couple of times. The last time I went thru it, it was at night. My friends and I had stopped just north of Kingman, AZ off the freeway so they could make a potty run (men ...... they can go anywhere! lol) and as I was looking north I could not believe my eyes.There was this HUGE dome of light on the horizon and I had to ask .......... Ummm guys, is that Vegas? It was and oh my gosh! We were just over 100 miles away still and the night sky was lit up by the lights of Vegas.Amazing! This is the best picture I could find on the net. I didn't have the lights of Kingman getting in the way of my view, taking away from the lights of Vegas, but you get the picture here. If you look closely, you can see the beam from the Luxor Hotel/Casino. The link below shows a bigger picture. [​IMG]<a href="http://thegaffney-photos.deviantart.com/art/Kingman-AZ-at-night-346805474" >source</a>
