- The night the lights went out over Japan: part 1
- National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
- The earthquake and tsunami that impacted Japan on March 11, 2011 crippled the nation's power supplies, leaving many areas without, or with less, electricity. The data are shown here in comparison to the average nighttime lights of Japan taken from several DMSP satellite passes during 2010. Much lower light levels can be seen in many areas of Japan. Sendai, near the 9.0 earthquake epicenter and also the area hardest hit by the tsunami, is almost completely blacked out
