The Earth at Night (by NASA)

We’re now able to see “Unprecedented” new views of what our incredible Earth looks like at night. NASA’s scientists have just unveiled these never-before-seen photos that are global composites of the Earth. (They’ve called it the Black Marble.) Last year, a new sensor, called VIIRS (Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite), was launched aboard the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership Satellite, which, amazingly is sensitive enough to detect the light from a single ship in the sea.
