Satellite Images of Northern California Fires

Captured on August 20th, 2012, this image from the Suomi NPP satellites, made available by NOAA , shows the smoke plumes from the fires afflicting Northern California. A second close-up image uses a combination of high resolution visible and infrared imagery to distinguish not only the smoke plumes, but also the hotspots from the fires themselves (high pink color). The dark red-brown colors also indicate burn scars from where fires have been extinguished.
