(6 Sept. 2011) --- The Texas wildfires that have destroyed and continue to destroy thousands of acres of timber and prairie land, as well as hundreds of residences, are visible basically over many of the dozens of affected points across the nation's second largest state. The Expedition 28 crew members on the International Space Station, flying approximately 220 miles above Earth, recorded this wide panoramic image of Texas and beyond, from a point over the Gulf of Mexico, at 16:18:12 GMT, Sept. 6, 2011.
