CaptionsFires in Southern California
Fires in the San Bernadino Mountains, driven by Santa Ana winds, burned out of control Sunday morning when these images were taken from the International Space Station (ISS) at roughly 11 a.m. PST. Thick yellow smoke blows south, blanketing the valley below. This photgraph, looking southeast, captures the smoke pall as the ISS approached and passed over the region. Lake Arrowhead is the reservoir near the left edge of the phtograph.
A mosaic comprised of several photogaphs shows the breadth of the fires. A small break in the smoke near the center of the images marks Cajon pass. The mosaic contains photographs ISS007-E-18086, ISS007-E-18087, and ISS007-E-18088.
