VIIRS: 26 May 2012

Fifteen orbits of the recently launched Suomi NPP satellite provided the VIIRS instrument enough time (and longitude) to gather the pixels for this synthesized view of Earth showing the Arctic, Europe, and Asia.

The above composite -- collected on May 26, 2012 -- is also available as a 12,000 x 12,000 pixel (37 megabyte) image.
