Mind-Blowing: Waldo Canyon Burn Scar

July 5, 2012 at 2:50 PM 1 comment

This is an image NASA released today of the Waldo Canyon fire “burn scar” in the mountains immediately west of Colorado Springs, Colorado.

(NASA Earth Observatory image by Jesse Allen and Robert Simmon.)

That thing is huge.  Note the city of Colorado Springs in the lower right-hand corner and the Air Force Academy (see the landing strip) in the upper right.  The Air Force academy is gigantic; it sits immediately alongside I-25 and you drive for miles before passing it.

More info and larger version here.
