Wildfires Seen From Station
NASA Station Science Officer Ed Lu snapped this stunning image of the wildfires ravaging Southern California's San Bernardino National Forest on Sunday, October 26 at about 2 p.m. EST, a day before he and Expedition 7 crewmate Yuri Malenchencko left the International Space Station and returned safely to Earth. In the foreground are Lake Arrowhead, left, and Silverwood Lake. The photo was taken with a digital camera equipped with a 400mm lens. Image Credit: NASA
NASA's Earth-orbiting satellites are also monitoring the fires.
