The Asian nation sticks out as it sits between China and South Korea - but not for the right reasons

Lights out: North Korea can be seen by it's lack of lights

This incredible photograph shows the difference between North and South Korea - from thousands of miles away.

Taken by an astronaut on board the International Space Station , it shows the two squabbling nations and part of China at night.

While the edges of the nations can be seen against the blue of the sea, one thing in particular is most evident.In South Korea, at the top of the photo, and China, at the bottom, there are a series of bright yellow lights glittering away.

The lights, coming from homes, businesses, streets and other structures, show clearly where the major cities are in the two countries.

But in between the two nations there is a noticeable lack of lights - revealing how North Koreans struggle with little or no electricity.

Astronaut Scott Kelly, who posted the photo on Twitter, said: "Feel bad for the people of # NorthKorea when I see with my own eyes they live without electricity."
