ISS036-E-035685 (24 Aug. 2013) --- One of the Expedition 36 crew members aboard the International Space Station used a 50mm lens to record this high oblique view of the massive drought-aided Rim Fire in and around California's Yosemite National Park and the Stanislaus National Forest on Aug. 24. A portion of a solar array panel on the orbital outpost can be seen in upper left corner of the image. Editor's Note: The fire began on Aug. 17 and, as of Aug. 26, continues to burn. More than 224 square miles have been affected.
