NASA California Fires from Space 2009

In case you haven’t seen this around, BoingBoing.net has a nice link round up for NASA’s photos of the current California fires as seen from space. ┬áThe smoke cloud is impressive in the most depressing way possible. ┬áThe BoingBoing link has links to NASA’s original image and large version, a NYT piece on the fires featuring the image, and some detailed information about the fires from the JPL at NASA.
