The planet that we inhabit is no longer as bright as it once was.
The warming ocean waters have reduced the brightness of the Earth, resulting in that half a Watt less reflection of light per square meter of light on Earth than we had seen 20 years ago, a study has revealed.
According to satellite measurements carried out as part of NASA’s Clouds and the Earth’s Radiant Energy System (CERES) project, bright, reflective low-hanging clouds over the Eastern Peninsula have diminished over the past few years.
EarTHlight, the light that is reflected from Earth into outer space, is what makes the moon so bright in the night sky. The bright light that is reflected by the moon is the Earth Light.
