Raging wildfires in Los Angeles County, as seen by NASA's Terra satellite at about 11 a.m. PDT on Saturday. The red outline is a hotspot where the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) instrument on Terra detected unusually warm surface temperatures. The image is a bit blurry because the fires were not in the direct line of sight as Terra passed overhead. (Credit: NASA)
