NASA images show Indo-Pak border from space

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has released photos that clearly show the international border shared between Pakistan and India.

The border between the two countries is lit by security lights and can be easily seen in the photo. The city lights and darkness of the agriculture closely move along with the great curves of the Indus Valley.

The photo, which was taken by an astronaut aboard the International Space Station while he looked north across Pakistan’s Indus River valley, shows the port city of Karachi appearing to be a bright cluster of lights against the Arabian Sea.

This nighttime panorama shows one of the few places on Earth where the international border can be seen during the night.



Another picture shows the lights of Islamabad, Lahore and New Delhi while also showing an orange line snaking across the centre signifying the border zone between India and Pakistan.

The orange lit fence is essentially deigned to discourage smuggling and arms trafficking.
