Dramatic photos show the devastating Southern California wildfires from space

TwitterFacebook

As wildfires in California rage on Earth, astronauts watch from space. 

Crewmembers onboard the International Space Station have taken some particularly arresting images of smoke plumes pouring out of the fires burning more than 100,000 acres of land in Southern California.

"Thank you to all the first responders, firefighters, and citizens willing to help fight these California wildfires," NASA astronaut Randy Bresnik said in a tweet on Thursday.

Today’s pass over SoCal unfortunately doesn’t look any better. The fires east of Camp Pendleton and in Baja are visible as well#CaliforniaWildfires http://pic.twitter.com/khM9TK1u0F
