Smoke from wildfires streams across central Washington state this week; view from our Aqua satellite.

In September 2012, lightning sparked numerous wildfires in central Washington. This natural-color satellite image shows smoke from the fires streaming east toward Idaho. The image was acquired by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) aboard the Aqua satellite on September 10, 2012. Actively burning areas, detected by MODIS’s thermal bands, are outlined in red.
