4 Stunning Earth Night Lights Wallpapers from NASA
NASA consistently produces stunning and inspiring imagery of our Earth, solar system, and universe, many of which make for exceptional wallpapers for our desktops and home screens, and these new images of our home planet at night are no exception.
From NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, these four high resolution images show Earth and the major habitation sights of humans glowing from light pollution, showing where the cities and population centers are on the planet. The images focus on several regions but here we are focusing on four primary compositions: North America and the USA, Europe and Africa, Asia, and the Americas.
