Fires in Southern Mexico

May 27, 2006

On May 14, 2006, the MODIS on NASA's Terra satellite collected this image of numerous fires burning in southern Mexico. The locations of actively burning fires that MODIS detected are marked in red.

Thick smoke settles over the Sierra Madre del Sur range at the bottom right of the scene. The "washed out" appearance of the Pacific Ocean in the bottom part of the image is from bright sunlight reflecting directly back to the sensor.
