Wildfires in Colorado

Wildfires in Colorado
On June 11, 2013, the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite captured this image of the Royal Gorge, Big Meadows, and Black Forest fires burning in Colorado. Red outlines indicate hot spots where MODIS detected unusually warm surface temperatures associated with fires.
