Detailed Shots of Earth at Night from NASA

NASA have managed to have a pretty good year, placing the Curiosity Rover on Mars and launching new programs to encourage young and professional women in the field. Now, they’ve released what are possibly the most detailed nighttime shots of our planet ever. Shot by a satellite during 312 orbits around Earth, the images are composites of over 2.5 terabytes of imagery and have been cleaned up to remove all natural light sources (such as gas flares and auroras), leaving us with the beautiful twinkling lights of our towns and cities.
