Satellite picture of the Koreas: darkness at night

I captured this image via a NBC midcoast. It’s a rather stunning shot. A satellite photo of northeast Asia at night. There is a startling blackout in North Korea. I cannot vouch for the timing of the shot, but I assume it is still the case in North Korea. Not even the capital Pyongyang (on the western border of North Korea) is lit.

I wonder: do they operate by candlelight?
