EarthLights 2012 ================ Backdrops with an image of the Earth at night. 13 different sizes with the most common screen resolutions, from 640x480 to 2560x1440, and finally a 3600x1800 image. This image of the Earth at night is a composite assembled from data acquired by the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (Suomi NPP) satellite over nine days in April 2012 and thirteen days in October 2012. It took 312 orbits and 2.5 terabytes of data to get a clear shot of every parcel of Earths land surface and islands. See EarthLights_2012.txt for more info about the image. Credits ======= 2012, NASA Earth Observatory image by Robert Simmon, using Suomi NPP VIIRS data provided courtesy of Chris Elvidge (NOAA National Geophysical Data Center). Suomi NPP is the result of a partnership between NASA, NOAA, and the Department of Defense. 2015, Scaling and packaging by Marko K. Seppänen, m4rko.com/AMIGA .
