Aerial images of Berlin at night

It was recently asserted to me that when you look at cities from an airplane you see only lit streets, not dots corresponding to street lamps. My job often involves flying at low altitude over Berlin, and in my experience, there are massive numbers of individual lamps visible from the air. I decided to share some of the photos I've taken that show the "dots". If you're interested in pretty images of monuments from the air at night, look here instead.

The first example is what we'd like to see - the street is lit, but you don't see any dots corresponding to the lamp:

The rest of the examples show that in many places you can see street lights from the air:

Finally, here's an example of the kind of lamp that's a problem - because of the curved glass a lot of light is directly emitted into the sky:
