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