California Fires

Just briefly: I flew home from Portland today. As soon as we crossed into California, smoke became visible from the scores or hundreds of fires ignited by lightning over the weekend. I managed to roughly match three images I took from my flight to three satellite images of the same general region shot yesterday by NASA. I’ll try to refine later, but the sight of all the smoke–so much that everything here in the Bay Area reeks of it–was truly stunning.

  1. Amazing. I’ve seen some fires during my summer flights to Portland over the years, but nothing like that. All of the fires and smoke around here are unheard of. I hope it clears up soon.
    By the way – I dig the slideshow viewer.
