Our Planet At Night

Hey Space Placers!

Check out Earth at night as seen from a new NASA-NOAA satellite:

Earth at Night (splash)

The manmade light that we see means that it is wasted energy as light should illuminate the surrounding  area, not be directed into the night sky.

Perhaps there will come a day (or night!!!) when we see far less light directed into the sky as a result of better illuminating technology and design.

We can ill afford wasted energy and light pollution.
