LA Fires From Space

Thanks to all of you who have inquired if I am being impacted by the terrible fires in the Los Angeles area that as of this afternoon have burned over 105,000 acres. Luckily, I live away from the fire area, but my condolences go out to all of those who have suffered losses. This NASA image from yesterday gives you some idea of the extent of the fire, although the Station Fire has more than doubled in size since that time!

If you want to learn more about how this image was collected and processed, visit the NASA's Earth Observatory site. For up to date information on the fire, I have been following the LA Times web site which is doing an excellent job in covering the blazes.
