Fires in Arizona and New Mexico

March 1, 2013
On July 9, 2003, the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on the Aqua satellite captured this image of Arizona (left) and New Mexico (right) along with numerous active fire detections, which are marked in red. The two ?hot spots? at the base of Mt. Lemmon in Arizona are from the Aspen Fire, while the large, easternmost cluster of red outlines in New Mexico is from the Dry Lake Complex Fire.
