The wildfires in the western U.S. have produced a smoke cloud that covers almost 1 million square miles and has traveled 1,300 miles, as shown in the above NASA satellite image.
The cloud was clearly visible from 1 million miles away and so thick that it obscured the view of California and the northern Pacific Ocean, as seen in the below images.
From a million miles away, NASA’s EPIC camera on NOAA’s DSCVR satellite captured this imaging showing a smoke cloud hanging over California, and the northeastern Pacific Ocean.
NASA’s Terra satellite captured this photo of a wall of smoke from the fires in California and Oregon on Sept. 9.
