City Lights of the United States

This image of the United States of America at night is a composite assembled from data acquired by the Suomi NPP satellite in April and October 2012. The image was made possible by the new satellite’s “day-night band” of the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS), which detects light in a range of wavelengths from green to near-infrared and uses filtering techniques to observe dim signals such as city lights, gas flares, auroras, wildfires, and reflected moonlight.

With each satellite map you will get:

  • Fresh, high-resolution satellite imagery printed on thick 10 mil luster photo paper 
  • Carefully packaged prints in hardened shipping tubes
  • A truly unique gift idea that will last a lifetime

We offer hundreds of scenes in multiple sizes covering your favorite cities, lakes, islands and even national parks.
