Wildfires in the Yukon

July 19, 2013
On July 14, 2013, the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite captured this image of three large wildfires burning in the Yukon territory of western Canada. Red outlines indicate hot spots where MODIS detected unusually warm surface temperatures associated with fire. The image is centered at 136° West longitude and 62.5° North latitude.
