Today’s Image of the Day comes thanks to the European Space Agency (ESA) and features a look at burn scars caused by wildfires in Greece.

Though wildfires in Greece are common this time of year, an especially strong heatwave prompted this fire to blaze just 22 miles northeast of Athens beginning in mid-August.

This image was captured by the Sentinel-2 satellite.
