This true-color image from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on the Terra satellite on March 6, 2003, show the enormous burn scars left behind by the past two months’ devastating bushfires in southeast Australia. In the true-color image healthy vegetation appears deep green and burned areas are subtly browner. Red dots mark the location of active fires.
