Smoke Over Southern California

On the afternoon of December 5, 2017, NASA research pilot Donald Broce shot photographs of smoke streaming from intense wildfires burning in Southern California. They were taken from the cockpit of NASA’s high-flying ER-2 aircraft . The photos were taken from an altitude of roughly 12 miles (20 kilometers). The ER-2 is based at NASA’s Armstrong Flight Research Center in California and was conducting an engineering flight test of the Cloud-Aerosol Multi-Angle Lidar (CAMAL) instrument when the photos were taken. A day later, an astronaut on the International Space Station took a photograph (below) of smoke streaming west from the fires. The space station orbits roughly 248 miles (400 kilometers) above the surface.
