Fires in Eastern Russia

July 18, 2013
On June 27, 2013, the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite captured this image of wildfires burning in the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia), a region in northeastern Russia. Red outlines indicate hot spots where MODIS detected unusually warm surface temperatures associated with fire. The image is centered at 122° East longitude and 63° North latitude.
