Queensland Bushfire Smoke Visible From Space

2018-11-28 07:14
Bushfire smoke was visible from space on November 28, as out-of-control fires burned on Queensland’s coast. Deepwater residents were issued with a “leave now” notice in the afternoon of Tuesday, November 27, and Fire and Emergency Services Minister Craig Crawford warned of a bad day on Wednesday. This imagery recorded by JMA’s Himawari-8 satellite between 6:30 am and 8:10 am Wednesday shows the smoke haze above Queensland. Credit: NOAA/RAMMB/CIRA via Storyful
