Twinkling city lights, raging wildfires and colorful auroras are lit up in new dazzling nighttime views of the Earth.

They show Britain's major cities bathed in light, with London and it's sprawling suburbs clearly visible.

They incredible images were taken from a newly-launched NASA-NOAA satellite that's equipped with a sensor to observe the planet at night.


The incredible images from Nasa show the UK on the night of March 27, 2012. The image was made possible by the new satellite's 'day-night band' which can spot lighting more accurately than ever before
