A NASA Earth Observatory image shows the area near the Nile River valley and delta on the night of October. The image was acquired by the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) on the Suomi NPP satellite. This image was acquired near the time of the new Moon, and little moonlight was available to brighten land and water surfaces. (Reuters/ NASA)
