Bright Lights, Big City

Posted By on Wed, May 10, 2006 at 4:00 AM

A CBU graduate named David McKenzie is presently working as an assistant professor at the solar physics group at Montana State University. Among other things, he is working on “the analysis and observation of solar flares and the structures that produce them, and the behavior of magnetic fields during solar flares.” We’re sure this is all very interesting, but what we like the most about his website is this rather unusual aerial photo of Memphis, taken in the dark. The view is looking south. It’s a large image, so you’ll have to scroll back and forth, up and down, to see the whole city. That’s the Mississippi River to the right, and if you look carefully you can make out the parallel lines of the runways at Memphis International Airport.

Take a closer look here.
