Black Marble Nighttime Blue/Yellow Composite (Day/Night Band) image of Typhoon In-Fa over eastern China. This image was acquired by Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS), aboard the joint NASA/NOAA Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (Suomi NPP) satellite. This image is a false color composite using the VIIRS at-sensor radiance and the brightness temperatures from the M15 band. The  false color scheme produces nighttime city lights in shades of yellow with infrared, nighttime cloud presence in shades of blue. During bright moonlight conditions, moonlight reflected from cloud tops and the land surface may also provide a yellow hue to those features.
