Waldo Canyon Fire Burn Scar in Colorado

Waldo Canyon Fire Burn Scar in Colorado

The Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) on the Terra satellite acquired this view of the fire's burn scar on July 4, 2012. Vegetation-covered land is red in the false-color image, which includes both visible and infrared light. Patches of unburned forest are bright red, in contrast with areas where flecks of light brown indicate some burning. The darkest brown areas burned the most severely. Constructed surfaces, such as buildings and roads, appear light gray and white. The bright red patches of vegetation near Colorado Springs are likely golf courses, parks, or other irrigated land.
