New NASA Composite Video: The Earth at Night
This view of Earth at night is a cloud-free view from space as acquired by the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership Satellite. A joint program by NASA and NOAA, Suomi NPP captured this nighttime image by the day-night band of the satellite’s Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite VIIRS. It combines the Earth at night view created by NASA’s Earth Observatory with data processed by NOAA’s National Geophysical Data Center with the EO Blue Marble: Next Generation.
