Bushfires Raging in Southeast Australia

February 19, 2013
Cloudy skies hint at improving conditions for firefighters battling out-of-control blazes in southeast Australia. This true-color Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) image from the Aqua satellite on Feb. 6, 2003, shows active fires (red dots) still choking the air with smoke. Millions of acres have been scorched by these fires, which have been burning for about a month. The high-resolution image provided above is 500 meters per pixel. The MODIS Rapid Response System provides this image at MODIS? maximum spatial resolution of 250 meters. Credit: Image courtesy Jeff Schmaltz, MODIS Rapid Response Team, NASA GSFC
