Image of fires in South Sudan, acquired on 13 January 2019 by the Visible Infrared Imaging Suite (VIIRS) instrument, aboard the joint NASA/NOAA Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (Suomi NPP) satellite. This false-color image using VIIRS bands M11-I2-I1 is useful for distinguishing burn scars. The center of the image shows two active fire fronts, represented by red dots, adjacent and surrounding the previously burned area in brown.
