Bushfires in southeastern Australia
high res (0.6 M) low res (50 K)
ISS006-E-19300 (18 January 2003) --- Bushfires in southeastern Australia were captured with a digital still camera by one of the Expedition Six crewmembers on the International Space Station (ISS). Brisk winds were sweeping smoke plumes eastward off the Australian coast north of Cape Howe. The agricultural valleys of the Murrumbidgee and Murray Rivers give way to the burning, darker bush areas of the mountains with the extreme eastern coastline of Victoria visible beyond.
