Fires in Baja California

28 September 2009


Wildfires burned in Baja California on 23 September 2009. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite captured this image of a group of fires just south of the U.S.-Mexico border. Small fires burn north of Ensenada, the largest fire in that group producing a visible plume of smoke. South of Ensenada, another fire burns, and it produces a larger, thicker plume of gray-brown smoke. The smoke plumes blow toward the southwest, over the Pacific Ocean.
