Hurricane Sandy was captured at 2:42 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time on October 28, 2012 by a special “day-night band,” on Suomi NPP satellite, which detects light in a range of wavelengths from green to near-infrared and uses filtering techniques to observe dim signals such as auroras, airglow, gas flares, city lights, fires, and reflected moonlight. In this case, cloud tops were lit by the nearly full moon. Some city lights in Florida and Georgia are also visible through the clouds.
