A British airline pilot has taken some incredible aerial shots that show mega-cities of the world illuminated like an electric grid.

Captain Jon Bowles, 55, has travelled the equivalent of ten round trips to the moon. Taken from the flight deck, the stunning photos show some of the most recognizable places in the world from an-above earthly perspective, including Dubai, Bangkok, Tokyo and New York.

From Bolton, UK, Captain Jon Bowles took all these marvelous pictures over the past five years during night-flights that span the globe. A seasoned pilot, Jon Bowles has racked up an astounding five million air miles during his 36-year career as a pilot.

“I look for shapes in the cities, light areas, dark areas and patterns in the way the city is laid out,” said Jon.
