India shines at night, NASA releases pictures from space

India shines at night, NASA releases pictures from space. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration has released its latest global maps of Earth at night giving the 'clearest yet composite' view of the patterns of human settlement on the planet Earth. Satellite images of Earth at night- often called as 'night lights' have been a tool for fundamental research for nearly 25 years. They have provided a broad, beautiful picture, showing how humans have shaped the planet and lit up the darkness. NASA's new global map of Earth at night, as observed in 2016, has been released this week just five years after such a map was released in 2012. A research team of NASA plans to find out this year what would happen if night lights imagery could be updated yearly, monthly or even daily.
