Yeah… AIB's got all the dope on it and as expected it's hilarious!

So this picture has been doing the rounds since a couple of years and we've always believed that it's a real image of India from up there, all lit up on Diwali night.

This 'creative' is about 12 years old (it's from 2003), and was created by Chris Elvidge, a scientist at National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to highlight the country's population growth over the years. Even NASA's Earth Observatory confirmed the same saying it's a colour-composite image created from satellite photos over time.

Watch the AIB guys reveal all about this viral image in this video!
