Picture of the Day - 2012 NorCal Fires From Space

Satellite view late this evening/early this afternoon of the Chips Fire (Plumas County - southernmost fire) and Reading Fire (eastern Shasta County - northernmost fire visible in CA) in Northern California as well as various other fires in southern Oregon and northern Nevada. Note monsoonal moisture over parts of eastern California and across the Nevada's Great Basin & Range. Note: the date shows tomorrow but the satellite operates on international time or GMT.
