5 Incredible Wallpapers of Earth at Night from a NASA Satellite:

Wallpaper time! But first, some backstory: NASA and NOAA joined up last year to launch the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership satellite, and other than delivering tons of interesting scientific details of the Earth’s atmosphere and surface, that satellite has provided some incredible imagery of our little blue dot at night. That aforementioned imagery makes for some stunning wallpapers, and the resolutions provided are gigantic sizes at up to 8192 x 8192 pixels for squared images, and a whopping 12150 x 6075 pixels for the rectangular images, meaning you won’t have any trouble finding wallpaper with freakishly high resolution goodness. That means whether you have an iPad or MacBook Pro with a retina display, a 27″ iMac, or just an iPhone or normal PC, you’ll be able to spruce up the desktop and home screens with these amazing images.
There are flat views available of the planet and USA (the eastern half of the USA looks like some crazy incarnation of The Grid from TRON), and globe views available for everywhere on the planet, including the Americas, Europe, Asia, Australia, Middle East, and Africa. Click on any of the links below to jump to NASA’s Flickr page so you can grab the high-resolution versions.
