Google Maps has launched a new layer called Earth at Night 2012 using data from NASA’s Earth Observatory and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The data is referred to as Black Marble imagery because of its unique view of the planet’s city lights at night. The Blue Marble, of course, is NASA’s high-resolution look at Earth during its daylight houes. This night view was captured by the Suomi NPP satellite over nine days in April 2012 and 13 days in October 2012.
