Dark Knots and Yellow Spots: Sub-Saharan Africa and Energy Access

I’m willing to bet that you’ve seen this picture somewhere. The very first time I saw something resembling the picture above, I was in my home, crouched upon a sofa watching the iconic Ad Astra. Earth was rotating, and just as the eager rays of the sun hit the planet, I caught the glistening night bathing our continents, and with it, clusters of yellow spots. That picture hardly held any significance to me at the time. If only I had more clarity.
