The Bootleg Fire that has scorched more than 600 square miles in Oregon is so big it can be seen from space.
Videos shared by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration earlier this week show smoke pluming into the air from the Bootleg Fire.
The videos were taken by NOAA’s GOES-17 environmental satellite, which monitors weather in the Western Hemisphere. The satellite has an orbit height of more than 22,000 miles.
