On Diwali, we all look forward to the picture which shows a glittering image of the Earth from space. But did you know that the picture is absolutely farce? The image, which is circulated fiercely across social media during this period, is actually Photoshopped and captioned as: ‘This is how India looks from space on the night of Diwali.’
So now, the real question is – How does India look like from space on Diwali? Do not fret. Because we have the answer.

On October 19, astronaut Paolo Nespoli shared the real picture of India from Space and this is what it appears, precisely.

“Diwali, the Hindu Festival of Lights, starts today. Happy Diwali to everyone,” is what Paolo Nespoli’s post reads.
Here’s what India looks like on Diwali:
