Satellite Observation of Fires in Indian Oil Depot

India Oil Depot caught fire on October 29, 2009 at around 7:30 pm local time. This depot is located about 10 miles south of the Indian pink city Jaipur in the state of Rajasthan. Fire is so massive that the entire area is covered by black smoke clouds. Smoke and haze are visible up to 16 miles away from the fire location. This image is taken by NASA’s MODIS onboard EOS Aqua satellite on October 30, 2009 during its pass over India.

Original data for the image is taken from NASA’s MODIS Rapid Fire System and processed at University of Alabama in Huntsville, AL.
