Below are two satellite photos of the Wallow fire.
The first one was captured from the Landsat 7 ETM+ (SLC-Off) sensor today around noon. The active fire is orange and burned areas are red; you can easily see the smoke blowing to the north east. The linear “gaps” that look like venetian blinds in the imagery indicate a sensor malfunction in those areas. Other than that, a gorgeous image. Spatial resolution (pixel size) of this imagery is 30m. The MODIS thermal detects that we have in some of the other satellite images are 1km.
The second image is a standard weather satellite image, captured today at 6:15 p.m.
