Big Sur Fire, California

 (JPG) Big Sur Fire, California (1,260,862 bytes) ( 3,858 x 2,484 )
Fires burning near Big Sur, California continued to burn unchecked when ASTER captured this image on Sunday, June 29. In Northern California alone, fires have consumed over 346,000 acres. At least 18,000 people have deployed to attempt to extinguish or control the flames. Air quality as far away as San Francisco has been adversely impacted by the dense clouds of smoke and ash blowing towards the northwest. The satellite image combines a natural color portrayal of the landscape, with thermal infrared data showing the active burning areas in red. The dark area in the lower right is a previous forest fire. The image covers an area of 35.4 x 57 kilometers and is located near 36.1 degrees north latitude, 121.6 degrees west longitude.
