California Wildfires: Here’s the View From Space


Wildfires raging across Northern California have left at least 17 people dead and destroyed more than 2,000 structures throughout the state’s wine country since Sunday.

Spurred by powerful winds, more than a dozen wildfires have forced thousands of people out of their homes and destroyed wineries in the region. A photo from NASA showing those wildfires from space reveals actively burning “hot spots” which are outlined in red. The hot spots on the map are peppered throughout Northern California, including areas surrounding Napa, Calistoga and Mendocino.

NASA’s Terra satellite took the photo of the wildfires from space, and highlighted the hot spots using an instrument that detected higher temperatures in those areas. See how the wildfires look from space above.
