Look at how much light pollution we create in Singapore

This image from NASA's EOSDIS shows the light pollution generated by Singapore. EOSDIS provides the capability to interactively browse full-resolution, global, near real-time satellite imagery allowing us to view at the entire Earth as it looks "right now" - or at least as it has looked within the past few hours.

And here's a beautiful view of Earth at night from space constructed using cloud-free night images from a new NASA and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) satellite. The video shows the glow of natural and human-built phenomena across the planet in greater detail than ever before.
