The Earth At NightDPMag Published in Blog
Here's a pretty pretty beautiful image of the earth, not only because it animates the planet's rotation, but because it's comprised of images of our earth at night. It comes from the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership satellite, via the Pixiq photo blog. The animation was made of images captured over 22 days in the spring and fall of 2012. The satellite had to make 312 orbits to capture 2.5 terabytes of data, which provided a perfectly clear image of every last little bit of the Earth's surface. It's a beautifully subtle image of dark tones punctuated by occasional bursts of map-defining electric light. Simply gorgeous.
