Hundreds of homes have been destroyed, thousands have been evacuated, hundreds of thousands of acres have been destroyed. Colorado is facing the worst wildfire season in over a decade. You know a problem is serious when it’s visible from space.
This video was taken from aboard the International Space Station. You start to be able to notice the smoke about :30 into the video. It’s amazing that even from space, it takes a number of minutes just to orbit around a single state. Helps you appreciate the true size of our planet, as well as the fires themselves.
