ON THE MOVE
The incredible image reveals a cloud covering nearly a million square miles.
The wildfires in the western U.S. have produced a smoke cloud that covers almost 1 million square miles and has traveled 1,300 miles, as shown in the above NASA satellite image.
The cloud was clearly visible from 1 million miles away and so thick that it obscured the view of California and the northern Pacific Ocean, as seen in the below images.
