Satellite views as California wildfires rage – CNET

As wildfires continue to burn across California, there appears to be no end in sight to the destruction. The hot dry winds that typically denote California’s “fire season” between August and November have only just begun.  

In all of 2019, an estimated 259,823 acres of California burned, and already this year, California has seen more than 1 million acres burned. 

This image from NASA’s Terra Modis (Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) satellite shows a view of California from Redding in the north to Los Angeles in the south, with thick smoke covering nearly the entire state.
