Short summary
New satellite sensors are able to view visible light, such as that emitted by cities, at night. It may be possible to use the light from cities to assess the amount of particulate matter in the atmosphere and the thickness of clouds. To do this we must understand how light emitted from the Earth's surface changes with time and viewing conditions. This study takes a step towards understanding the characteristics of light emitted by cities and its stability in time.
