7/6/2015 The Latest View of Smoke From Space

Twice a day the west coast gets a nice, clear picture taken of it from space thanks to NASA and the MODIS (Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) instruments on the Terra and Aqua satellites.
Below is the most recent view from Terra showing smoke swirling around in BC and drifting south into Washington.  A very high resolution version of this image is available here:  http://ge.ssec.wisc.edu/modis-today/index.php?satellite=t1&product=true_color&date=2015_07_06_187&overlay_sector=false&overlay_state=true&overlay_coastline=true&sector=USA1&resolution=250m




NASA is watching the smoke too and posted the following news story about smoky skies over the world cup soccer match in Vancouver, BC yesterday.
