Every year on Diwali we see certain images of lit up India. Not all these images are real. Here's looking at some of these images shared widely by people but 100% fake.
1. This fake image was circulated by a Facebook user saying this was India at night during Diwali and the picture was by NASA.
This was the original image at that time in 2012.
The image was actually colour-composite, created in 2003 by NOAA scientist Chris Elvidge to highlight population growth over time.
