Video of Texas Wildfires From Space
The crew of the International Space Station got a bird's eye view of the wildfires burning in Texas.
From 220 miles above the Earth, the crew captured this video clearly showing the smoke plumes emanating from several of the fires.
"It is a sad sight with all the fires burning in Texas right now. See one major one, and three smaller ones," said flight engineer Mike Fossum.
