NASA questions This is a list of recently added questions about NASA. In 2012, NASA published famous 'Black Marble' night lights images. What are the lights in the uninhabited regions of western Australia caused by?Wildfires. These images were assembled from data acquired over nine days in April 2012 and 13 days in October 2012.
