This remarkable image was made by combining data from several satellites, including the DMSP satellite which carries a camera system sensitive enough to take pictures of clouds by moonlight.

This image was chosen by NASA as an Astronomical Picture Of the Day, and has been published worldwide in newspapers, magazines, and websites.
