Luminosity doesn't lie

With a big extraterrestrial h/t to tweeting Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield here is a reminder of just how borderless we really area; no matter how much we deny it:

 
Dare I connect the dots with this AP story running now: Pa. officials mull consolidating transit agencies.

You can tell where the big retail clusters are by the areas of bright white light. You can see McKnight Road to the north, William Penn Highway to the east, the Cenrury III cluster to the south, and the Robinson Town Centre cluster (clustre?) to the west. You can also the The Waterfront along the Monongahela River, and even the Waterworks Mall along the Allegheny River.

If luminosity doesn't lie, we need to grow the Mon Valley. The mighty Monongahela peters out into darkness and obscurity sooner than you'd think.

It really would have been an orange glow at the conflux of the Turtle Creek flowing into the Monongahela.
