Maxar Technologies collected new satellite imagery September 6th, of Colorado’s Cameron Peak wildfire that grew in size and intensity over the weekend and spread significant smoke across the Front Range cities of Colorado, including Fort Collins.
Below is a gallery of satellite images from that include both Maxar’s high-resolution images from early Sunday afternoon, as well as a broader view of the state from NASA’s MODIS satellite imagery Saturday that shows how far the smoke drifted across the region. Included are both natural color images as well as color infrared imagery. With color infrared satellite imagery, healthy (not burned) vegetation appears in shades of red while burned areas appear black or gray.
