Today’s Image of the Day comes from the NASA Earth Observatory and features a look at the burn scars left behind after December 2017’s California wildfires.

The Thomas fire in Ventura County quickly became the worst ever in the state in the month of December after burning 272,000 acres over 16 days.

This image was captured by the Operational Land Imager (OLI) on board the Landsat 8 satellite.
