The Eagle Ford development is big enough to see from space. New photos from NASA show just how big the Eagle Ford really is. The play rivals many metropolitan areas in visibility from space.
The photos were taken by the Suomi NPP Satellite in April of 2012. You can watch a video showing city lights around the world at nasa.gov
At the time the photos were taken, there were almost 280 rigs active in the area and approximately 250 rigs were targeting the Eagle Ford formation.
Thank you to Terry Nance who noticed the visibility of the play in new photos released from NASA.
