BAJA - The Baja Peninsular at Night

This is a recent night photo taken from the International Space Station that shows Southern California and the Baja peninsular. Even ten years ago, this view of Baja would have been almost completely dark, but now we see the lights of the growing cities as development and infrastructure arrives. North of San Felipe, almost half way to the blob of light that is the Mexicali/El Centro region, you can see a spot of light that is from the operating gold mine just north of the Ensenada road. This mine is now a significant employer of labor in the San Felipe region and has been a boom in filling vacant apartments and unused hotel rooms with engineers and administrators involved in the operations.
