Fire detection satellite

NASA satellites capture California wildfires

The red lines indicate areas where MODIS detected fires.

In early May 20103, dry Santa Ana winds started several wildfires in Southern California, USA. NASA's Terra and Aqua satellites captured images of the fires with their Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS). The red lines on the picture indicate where MODIS detected unusually warm surface temperatures indicating fires about 50 miles north of Los Angeles.
