"Once again, NASA was able to capture a natural disaster from outer space thanks to satellite technology.
Over the past decade, NASA has been able to get satellite images of earthquakes, tsunamis, tornados and much more. The most recent addition to this collection is a series of photos of the New Mexico and Arizona wallow fires.
Both NASA's Terra and Aqua satellites caught separate images of the New Mexico Las Conchas fire, which has blazed through 61,000 acres of land near Los Alamos, N.M in the north-central part of the state. In addition, the International Space Station caught two non-satellite images of the fire."
