Image of fires and smoke across the western USA, acquired on 7 September 2020. The image shows fires burning in the states of Washington, Oregon, California, Idaho, Utah, and Colorado. The photo-like, true color corrected reflectance image was captured by the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) aboard the joint NASA/NOAA NOAA-20 satellite. Red dots overlaid on the image are thermal anomalies/hotspots detected by the VIIRS thermal anomalies algorithm. They represent the center of a 375m pixel flagged as containing one or more thermal anomalies.
