California wildfires seen from space


Today’s Video of the Day comes courtesy of NASA Goddard and features a look at the disastrous California wildfires as seen from space.

The smoke from the wildfires can be seen a million miles away from Earth, as captured by NASA’s Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera (EPIC) on the NOAA’s Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR). The Terra satellite also picked up thermal imagery that reveals the exact locations of the blazes beneath the smoke.
