How massive are the wildfires torching Southern California? Smoke from the blazes is clearly visible from 438 miles above the Earth.
The largest plume, top left, is from the Thomas Fire, which has burned more than 50,000 acres in Ventura County. Smaller plumes from the Creek and Rye fires, closer to Los Angeles, also are visible. (Those puffy white streaks towards the bottom of the photo are clouds.)
