Everyone is celebrating the festival of Diwali and it is one of the most-awaited festivals marked in India. And one thing that has become a yearly mark is NASA's releasing of the picture. The satellite image of India during Diwali released by NASA a few years ago is quite famous. Once again during Diwali 2019, a fake satellite image of India is still going viral where people are claiming it’s a picture from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) on a Diwali night. The funny bit is that people circulate the same pictures every year and still believe it’s real. Some of them are just India on a regular day and some pictures are from a survey on India’s population over the years. Happy Gujarati New Year 2019 Wishes: WhatsApp Stickers, Naya Saal Greetings, Hike GIF Images, Quotes, SMS And Messages to Send a Day After Diwali.

Diwali lights up almost every house. But NASA does not post a picture of the festival every year. In 2012 NASA posted a picture of Diwali night and ever since, people have been passing fake pictures around, claiming it’s taken from a satellite for the celebration of the festival. We all know how Whatsapp is one of the reasons why fake news goes around so easily. People genuinely believe everything news they receive on the messaging app and this one is no different. Not only do people believe the fake snap, but they are also asking for a picture of this year’s Diwali. Easy Rangoli Designs for Colorful Diwali 2019: Quick and Simple Rangoli Patterns With Colours and New Pookalam Designs With Marigold Flowers for Deepawali (Watch DIY Videos).

Unfollowed. Blocked. Reported!

The picture posted in 2012 has been long forgotten. All that's left are fake photos, pictures of the population growth and photoshopped pictures. Netizens would love a picture but more than that, they would like this to stop. This Diwali, don't forward the fake news!
