Fires in the Philippines

Fires in the Philippines

Roughly a dozen fires (red pixels) dotted the landscape on the main Philippine island of Luzon on April 1, 2002. This true-color image was acquired by the Moderate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS), flying aboard NASA’s Terra spacecraft.

Please note that the high-resolution scene provided here is 500 meters per pixel. For a copy of this scene at the sensor’s fullest resolution, visit the MODIS Rapidfire site.
