According to NASA, the image which shows nighttime lights over Japan was photographed by NASA astronaut Randy Bresnik from the International Space Station on November 6, 2017.
Astronauts have already shot millions of photographs in the past twenty (20) years and NASA explained that it is not just a hobby. “It is an important scientific job, and one they need to be trained to do,” stated the space administration.
“For example, researchers have used nighttime imagery of lights to better understand human activity. The images can reveal population changes, urban development, energy use, economic activities, and changes in types of lighting,” NASA added.
