Yellowstone Arnica Fire Seen From Space

The Arnica Fire — As Seen From Space

The image at the top of this page is an oblique image taken from the International Space Station when it was orbiting the Earth above Lake Winnipeg in Canada. The angle, of course, accentuates the plume from the fire, but it does give a good perspective on how far the smoke from the fire drifted over the Park. The second image is much more straightforward, showing the smoke from the Arnica Fire and a few other smaller fires in a traditional manner.
