  Wolf and Copper Fires Near Los Angeles
This photograph taken from the International Space Station on June 7, 2002, shows the Wolf and Copper Fires burning in the hills outside Los Angeles. Astronauts use a variety of lenses and look angles as their orbits pass over wildfires to document the long-distance movements of smoke from the fires as well as details of the burning areas. In this persepctive view, you can see the southern end of the San Joaquin Valley at upper left, and the Channel Islands at lower left. In the background is the Mojave Desert.
