The Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR) instrument aboard NASA's Terra spacecraft passed over the Colby Fire at 10:45 a.m. on Jan. 16, 2014, about five hours after the fire was first reported. The instrument was able to acquire images of the fire at different angles, allowing scientists to create a 3-D view of the Colby fire and images of the height of the smoke/particulate dispersal.
