    We have had huge bushfires here in the past few weeks, the worst being the fires that got into the suburbs of Canberra, our national capital, and burned 400 houses down, killing 4 people

    Heres a sat photo from last weekend of South East Australia. The fires themselves have been manually highlighted by someone, but the smoke can be clearly seen (I haven't seen anything real clearly this week as a result LOL)

    To get an idea of how big an area this is, check out an atlas. Its an area of coastline pretty similar to the US eastern coastline.

    I didn't know you could see little red pixels from outer space. Hmph. Who'd've guessed.

    Hence the comment 'The fires themselves have been manually highlighted by someone'

    Those little red pixels (or at least, what they represent) are destroying peoples lives remember.

    Don't remind me - we had enough of that a few years ago. Would be interesting to see a similar picture from that for comparison. I don't know how far you are away from the fires, Goo, but I know a little bit about that "not being able to see anything clearly because of all the damn smoke" thing.

    Wow, that's amazing thinking about that scale comparison. Hopefully they'll get conatained and extinguished somehow soon.

    It's cool mate. I was in a bit of a grump (probably due to breathing varying amounts of smoke every day for the last 3 months [img]graemlins/scared.gif[/img] ). Apologies for biting.

    No sign of the fires around us..
    Also not too hot, (MAX 31Degrees)

    But today, I drove drove up to the Hinze Dam. The dam supplying the water onto the Gold Coast

    You can visibly see that the dam is nearly empty (Well.. 25% of its full capacity).

    Doesnt look good

    You know...before I opened this thread up, I just assumed it would be one of those trick "screamer" pics. Like "Look closely at this pic from space and see if you can see the fires! You have to look REAL close though." Thank god it wasn't a joke. LOL I hate those damn screamer pic shit.

    But as for the actual pic. Damn. That's absurd, yet fascinating that the smoke is so clearly visible from orbit.

    No offense Goo, but that's a little nippy around here! Yeah, Yeah, that Celsius thing, I know. Americans don't think in Celsius terms though.
