Actual image of NASA during Diwali 2012

There has been an image floating on the internet which is suppose to be from NASA, a Satellite image of India with all the lights etc. during the festival of light.

On November 12, 2012, the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) on the Suomi NPP satellite captured this nighttime view of southern Asia. The image is based on data collected by the VIIRS “day-night band,” which detects light in a range of wavelengths from green to near-infrared. The image has been brightened to make the city lights easier to distinguish, says NASA.
