Have you seen how big the western wildfires look from space?

NASA recently released photos of some of the fires burning in the western United States and they really put into perspective just how large some of them are.

The wetter weather this last weekend helped firefighters contain many of the out of control blazes. Thank you Mother Nature, may we have some more?

MSN posted a dramatic photo of the Fontenelle fire burning in the Bridger-Teton forest of Wyoming on Monday, July 9, taken by a crew member on the International Space Station.

The pictures vividly show why we've been smelling smoke in our area even though we're miles from the nearest fire.
