According to news reports, more than 70 bushfires were burning across New South Wales, Australia, as of January 10, 2003. Another 20 large fires were burning to the south in Victoria. This true-color Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) image from the Terra satellite shows the fires marked with red. The image is centered on the Great Dividing Range Mountains in Kosciuszko National Park in southern New South Wales. In the high-resolution imagery, additional fires can be seen burning both south and northwest of Sydney, about 200 miles to the northeast of where the smaller image is centered.
