NASA Offers Satellite View Of Wyoming Wild Fires
Smoky skies. Irritated eyes. Red sunrises and sunsets. When will it end?
There are several ways to track wild fires across the region or across the nation. One way is to visit the NASA website, which provides constantly updated images of wildfires across the globe.
The images of land and lake covered by streams of gray show some of the intensity of the flames as well as the way the wind is pushing both fire and smoke.
The reports, below the pictures, provide a synopsis of what is burning and how contained it might or might not be.
The website helps users avoid confusing clouds with smoke by highlighting the areas that are burning in red to see the source. Here is an example of an Idaho/Wyoming fire that is moving across Yellowstone.
There are several galleries on the NASA website that show photos of the earth in detail that most people have never seen before.
