#30718 Stock Photo Of The Basin Fire In Central California As Seen From Space, July 4th 2008 by JVPD
Royalty-free nature stock photo of the Basin fire in central California as seen from space, taken by astronaut Greg Chamitoff, Expedition 17 flight engineer, on the International Space Statio on July 4th 2008. One of the largest and most destructive fires raging across California over the July 4 weekend was the Basin fire, threatening Big Sur, and covering the coast in a thick blanket of smoke. Chamitoff, observing the fires from approximately 344 kilometers above Earth (215 miles), was able to capture the regional view of the smoke pall. At the time this image was taken, more than 300 fires were burning in California alone. This Basin fire was triggered by a thunderstorm, had burned 77,000 acres, and was still only partially contained on the day this was taken. Photo credit: NASA [0003-0807-1513-0453] by 0003
