NASA | Earth at Night 5
In daylight our big blue marble is all land, oceans and clouds. But the night - is electric.

This view of Earth at night is a cloud-free view from space as acquired by the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership Satellite (Suomi NPP). A joint program by NASA and NOAA, Suomi NPP captured this nighttime image by the satellite's Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS). The day-night band on VIIRS detects light in a range of wavelengths from green to near infrared and uses filtering techniques to observe signals such as city lights, gas flares, and wildfires. This new image is a composite of data acquired over nine days in April and thirteen days in October 2012. It took 312 satellite orbits and 2.5 terabytes of data to get a clear shot of every parcel of land surface.

This video uses the Earth at night view created by NASA's Earth Observatory with data processed by NOAA's National Geophysical Data Center and combined with a version of the Earth Observatory's Blue Marble: Next Generation.

So many idiots in the comment section that dont even bother to do research. This video is a composite of thousands of photos taken from satellites to get rid of the clouds and only see the earth. Jesus so many uneducated people in this world.

Why can`t they just show earth in real time from out of space instead of using CGI and speed it up so we can see the earth rotate and day become night? oh they can not because they are a bunch of freaking liars.

Am I the only one worried that this is striking warning of how much damage we are doing to our planet? I worry there will be day you cannot see the stars from virtually anywhere in land..

So this is what Bill Clinton is doing post-presidency.

Wonderful work by the engineers and specialists who assembled the satellite images in to a composite video.

Shame about all the under educated whiners who are too eager to believe in conspiracies then in looking for greater understanding.

Why is it that some guy in Arizona has higher quality images of the moon from Earth, and his equipment is under 10K, and NASA has crappy images with billions in their budget?

I'm happy that they showed my india it looked beautiful. >_> don't start with hate now

Earth at Night: O Indra! It is because of ur greatness that the cycle of day & night keeps rotating. It is because of u, o friend Indra, that obstructive forces get defeated, & the world moves in the upright direction. #rigveda

와 2000년대만 하더라도 남한 일본 야간 조명 비교 사진 보면 확실히 일본 오사카 도쿄 쪽이 서울, 부산쪽보다 월등히 밝았었는데
2012년 되니까 별 차이가 없네ㄷㄷ 오히려 한국이 더 밝은듯.

그리고 한국 보면 옛날엔 서울 주변 몇몇, 부산 이렇게만 밝았었던거 같은데 10년사이에 경기도 남부, 충청도, 전라도 엄청 발전했네ㄷㄷ 한국이랑 중국 상하이 쪽이 아시아 전체에서 야간 밝기 1, 2등 다투는듯

Amazing ! Our Earth is very Beautiful even at Night...Especially my Country Pakistan !



Fake. CGI, that's not Australia at night. That's Photoshopped.

Fake or true, light pollution and energy waste are true. WTF!

Show one photo of the earth that isn't a composite and that isnt taken with a fish eye lens! NASA only has one, its from Apollo 17 but that one is actually a painting!

Now show us a real picture of earth, earth as a whole taken from one camera, not a photo of earth with composition of different bla bla bla cameras with bla bla bla function amd bla bla bla edited.

Anybody else see that empty void above south Korea?

Live feed during night can reveal very confidential info. This is why its very rare to see real non touched image/videos of earth during night.
During the day, sunlight cancels most of light sources, but during the night and aside from seeing lightnings, wildfires, volcanos, etc... you can see occasionally :
-Government/military (facilities, vehicles, aircrafts) emmiting light thus revealing their position and status.
-Explosions, (Artillery/Missile/Bomb) impacts, artillery firing, etc...
-Missiles/rockets emit bright visible light do to fuel combustion thus revealing launching location and even flight path.

In this case any gathered visual data must be revised and treated before getting released to public.
The average people can't pickup anything useful from such visual data because they are not trained nor have the right equipement to do so; compared to experts who can pickup the finest details thus collecting priceless intel.

1:30 You can see Communism from space! (Not South Korea)

Everything has something in common in our universe. Look at these pictures - the same look as universe meta-structure, neuron net structure, blood vessels - everything.
