Have you ever wondered what the Earth looks like at night? NASA provides a clear, cloud-free view of the Earth at night using the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership Satellite. The satellite utilizes an instrument known as the Visible Infrared Radiometer Suite (VIIRS), which allows the satellite to capture images of a “remarkably detailed view of the Earth of night.” VIIRS combines the Earth at night view created by NASA’s Earth Observatory with data processes by the NOAA’s National Geophysical Data Center.
