This view of Earth at night is a cloud-free view from space as acquired by the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership Satellite. A joint program by NASA and NOAA, Suomi NPP captured this nighttime image by the day-night band of the satellite's Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite VIIRS. It combines the Earth at night view created by NASA's Earth Observatory with data processed by NOAA's National Geophysical Data Center with the EO Blue Marble: Next Generation.Credit: NASA Goddard/NASA's Earth Observatory/NOAA/DOD

For years now, astronomers are predicting a starless night, worldwide, by the mid 21st century (caused by light-pollution).

Will be sad when the pollution of light will blot out the stars most places in the world. Thanks for the video.
