NASA shows us how heavily guarded the India-Pakistan border is

A nighttime panorama of South Asia shows one of the few places on Earth where an international border can be seen during the night – the India-Pakistan border.

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

The international border can be easily identified from space — all thanks to security lights that run the length of the border. 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.

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.

In comparison, daytime images of the region are less revealing. The following photograph of the region was clicked on June 14, 2014.

Great job India for securing the borders.
Time to raise 75 feet tall wall along the borders.
