Wallpaper of the Week: Forest Fires From Space

This week we have a great shot of smoke caused by forest fires streaming out over the atmosphere as viewed from space.
The image is mostly blue, white and black -  the blue planet with the black of space on the horizon. Icons work ok, though no high contrast.

Our point of view makes all the difference.

The origin of this photo is sad but, from that space view, it is a beautiful image.

As usual, thank you, rhiannon! :-)

I totally agree. I live in an area prone to wildfires, some of them fairly small and some of them gobbling up miles and miles of land. Other adjacent states are prone to wildfires and well, and if the wind gets up, the smoke blows here. Not great to breathe, but makes amazing sunsets. :)
