If you are looking at the earth from space, what is one of the most impressive new sights you can see in North America, or indeed anywhere else? It used to be the lights of Las Vegas, but today you can see an entirely new city, bigger than New York. This has appeared in the space of just a few years out in the dusty American Mid-West.
