Why are some Landsat browse images black?

Black Landsat browse images are night (ascending) scenes, which are occasionally acquired for rows 123 to 246. Black scenes with a bright oval (candle flame) are Partial Aperture Calibration (PAC) scenes, also acquired during the ascending node.

Both types of scenes contain useful data in the thermal infrared band 6.
